Focus: Separating into groups
This activity can be used to separate people into pairs or a large number of students into
different groups. With a small group, write the name of however many animals on two
different pieces of paper and have the participants draw one out. With a large group,
have students count off to a certain number and assign a certain animal for each number.
When you say “go”, participants will close their eyes and are only allowed to make the
noise of their animal in order to find their other group members. Animals such as cows,
pigs, dogs, chickens, elephants, cats, and horses all make for a fun, and noisy, activity.
