Prior to running this energiser, prepare some flashcards that represent topics from the training course that you are going to deliver. These flashcards will each contain one fact from the course. There will also be a corresponding flashcard that is the ‘Title’ of this fact.
Topic Title = Politeness
Flashcard descriptor = The act of being courteous and showing good manners to others in the way you speak, act, or otherwise converse with someone.
- Place participants into two teams.
- Give each team a set of flashcards and topic title cards (these can be different for each team, or the same cards).
- Explain to the teams that they have five minutes (base this time on the number of cards the teams have) to pair the title cards to the description flashcards. The team that pairs the most in the time given wins.
- The ‘winning team’ is the one that pairs the most correct answers for the cards. If both get the correct answers, it is the team that finished first.
