Looking for a fun way to get to know the people in your class or corporate training session, while having them get to know each other, too? Try Who’s Who Bingo.
Set up a 5×5 grid with characteristics about the participants. You can use general characteristics, or if you have the time, ask participants to offer some of their own characteristics. I usually personalize the Who’s Who Bingo based on the class or course I am teaching. Examples could include:
- Has brown eyes
- Drives a convertible
- Would rather do almost anything than give a speech
- Is the oldest child in the family
- Uses Twitter
- Has a tattoo
I like to have the Who’s Who Bingo sheets on the participants’ tables or desks when they come into the room, and I encourage them to start working on the sheet as more people filter into the room.
