The Ball of Names
Everyone stands in a circle and the peer educator explains the task. Task: when you get a ball, throw it to another member of the group and say his or her name out loud. You cannot toss the ball to someone, who already had it during this round (one round is completed, when everyone had a chance to get and throw the ball). The ball returns to the moderator, who started throwing it. At the end of the first round, the moderator explains that this time the ball will be tossed in the same way as the first time, but by saying each other’s names in reverse order. Later the task also includes the second ball – the participants toss them both: one in the standard and the other – in reverse order.
You can use even more balls, assigned with additional throwing rules. The key is shouting the name of the person, whom you’re throwing the ball to.
Names can be replaced with compliments. The key is making an eye contact with the person that you’re throwing the ball to.
