This free energsier helps participants to empathise with each other and is also useful in developing their understanding of a need to work together.
A one page set of instructions for the energiser, ‘Mirror Me’ can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the instructions below.
Place participants into pairs and ask them to face one another. The participants should take turns to make an action (i.e. raising their left arm), which the other must copy. They are not allowed to talk why they do this.
After several actions, one person should call stop and they both go back to the start and try to carry out the actions in the same order.
As they progress they will become more in time with each other and almost act as a real mirror.
The aim is to coordinate their movements and develop a mirror image of their movements. If one particular pairing achieve good synergy, ask the rest of the group to watch.
Use this energiser to energise the group and also help develop empathy between participants. It is also a good way of introducing the concept of the need to work together.
