Mini Groups


Intro: For this group exercise, rather than just focusing on one topic or activity, the group will participate in a series of short mini activities with everyone in the group getting a chance to work on an original idea.


Directions: Depending upon the size of the group, the objective is to come up with a series of 10 minute “mini activities”. Start by breaking the group up into smaller mini groups of 2 or three people in each mini group (depending upon how many people are present. If the group is very large, you may need to make mini-groups larger as well.) Then, each mini group should be given about 10 minutes to come up with a creative idea to present to the rest of the group as a 10-minute mini-activity. Mini groups can come up with questions, or do a brief art exercise, or do anything else that gets people talking and sharing for 10 minutes. Some ideas listed:


Get back together as a large group and take turns introducing each 10-minute mini-activity and then have the large group perform each 10-minute mini-activity together. Do this until all mini activities are done.
