This free energiser is useful to help participants recall important text based information that might usually be quite hard to provide to them in training. For instance: terms and conditions of a product or service, regulatory text, mission statements, product descriptions etc.
A set of instructions for the training energiser, ‘Word Jumble’ can be downloaded for free from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
Tools – prior to running this energiser, you should have pre-prepared a cut out of the text in question (if possible it would be useful to print this text in large font). You will need to clearly cut out each word from the complete text separately.
Place participants into groups (decide the amount of groups dependent on the amount of words in the text). Explain to the groups that their task is to organise the cut out words they have been given into a sentence or paragraph. The eventual paragraph will relate to the topic you have been discussing.
The winner will be the first team to correctly lay out the text to complete the sentence or paragraph.
This energiser helps get across information that might be difficult to communicate in other ways.
