This mixer comes from Paul Landhuis... Thanks Paul!
- Projection Capabilities
How to Play:
A few weeks beforehand, request pictures from students from at least 3 years ago--the more it doesn't look like you, the better. Prior to the mixer, create a PowerPoint with those pictures and then have people try to guess the names.
Once the person on screen is identified, they should stand up so kids can recognize and put a face to the name.
From Keith: The more work you put into this game, the better... my students love making fun of what an ugly child I was. Contacting parents, might be the most effective way to get childhood pictures. This game has great potential to be fun and personal and will definitely make your group's bond stronger.
- We bought a bag of bite size candy that works great as an incentive for games like this. First person to guess it right, gets a candy. It's fun to throw candy at your students and they don't mind it either!
- Make sure you involve your leaders too!
- Tell students ahead of time that if they see themselves, not to give it away.
