If you only have two minutes, say very little, keep things simple and focus on positives.
Story Telling in Rounds
Without practice or planning and against the clock the group are challenged to tell the story of the last activity in rounds. Each person may say only one word (or punctuation mark) when it is their turn. This is a fun communication exercise requiring a lot of concentration.
Post Cards and Photos
Have a selection of postcards or photos with different images on. Get each participant to choose one to describe how they feel about the experience they have had. Allow each person in the group to share.
Share a Movement or Sound
Each person does a movement, make a sounds or a combination of both that matches their mood. The group then copies all
Brief Moments of personal reflection (with eyes closed, facing outwards or lying down). Participants are encouraged to visualise three magic moments from the session. Focus on positive points throughout the session. Such as “Picture three magic moments from the activity that you would like to remember. Picture 1 is something you did or said. (Pause) Picture 2 is something another person did or said. (Pause) Picture three shows a good moment for the whole group”.
Ask a question that will relate to a person (e.g. who made a valuable contribution?). Each member of the group must place their hand on a person they feel answers the question. Ask questions that make people think a little. Take the opportunity to identify positive contributions from individuals that the group may not have picked up on. Explore why certain people have been picked by using questions to lead the group.
Chose a colour that matches your mood and explain to group why you chose this colour.
Snapshots or short video clips of moments that participants want to remember (e.g. fun, Success, Improvements, surprises, discoveries, insights). If these are caught on camera and you can provide instant replays – go ahead. But this works equally well if the group rein-act memorable moments form the activity.
Positive Feedback to All
“Talk in pairs about…” (Pick a success theme such as examples of leadership or humour or caring or effort in the group.) Alternatively, buddies give positive feedback on each others performance during the activity. To encourage a balance of giving and receiving positive feedback, each person takes turns to make one positive comment at a time.
