Would You Rather

This party game is ideal to be used in the classroom, at a seminar or workshop, or some gathering of adults. It’s easy and plenty of pleasure. Would you rather be bald or entirely hairy? Give your students hopeless questions to answer and permit them to ease into learning collectively.

We are going to explain how to play the game and give you lots of suggestions to get started.

IDEAL SIZE
Icebreakers are very important tools for teachers of adults. If you’re educating adults, you understand they learn differently than kids. They arrive at the classroom having a great deal of life experience, some more than others, of course, plus some of them bring wisdom, too, based on their age. When you open a fresh class or begin a fresh lesson, an ice breaker game might help your adult students feel more comfortable participating by getting them to laugh, helping them to meet fellow pupils, and relaxing everyone. Have a great time. Folks engage in learning faster when the encounter is interesting. Starting a session or a lesson plan having an icebreaker will help your adult pupils focus on whatever you’ve gathered to learn.

TIME DESIRED
30-60 minutes, determined by how big is the group. Break large groups into smaller groups by counting off when you have less time for this exercise.

STUFF WANTED
None. Just your imagination!

INSTRUCTIONS
Give the group a minute to think of a Would You Rather question. Give some examples (we have listed below!). There are published Would You Rather… novels and game cards readily available for sale in case you possess the budget to buy them, but once you get going, you can simply make questions up yourself.

In case your group will not look creative whatsoever, you can always print handouts with question ideas and let your students pick from the list.

Introduce yourself and ask the first person your question.

Example: My name is Deb, and I need to know in the event you would rather speak to some sizable group or hold a snake.

Following the man answers, he/she should give their name and get the following man their question. And so on.

Determined by the goal of your course or assembly, ask participants to think of a meaningful or thought provoking question. Should you use this game as an energizer, encourage people to simply be ridiculous.

DEBRIEFING
No debriefing is mandatory unless you’ve asked the group to come up with questions associated with your issue. If so, several of the choices likely inspired some outstanding answers. Choose a few to discuss further or to utilize as a lead-in to your first lecture or action. This ice breaker game makes a good warm up exercise for adult education lesson plans.
