Energizers-for-training-materialss

No matter how fun and engaging your class is, one thing is for sure, your participants will not show up at your class with an unlimited supply of energy. A good idea is to always keep a few energizers up your sleeve to boost the energy level of participants whenever needed.


Tweet It:

At the end of the training program or to conclude each module or unit of the course content, split participants into teams of two and challenge each team to come up with a summary of the content covered in only 140 characters. 


Read Out Loud:

As a quick energizer, challenge participants to read the next two slides.

Show slide with “He said that that that that that woman said should have been which.” After struggling for a while, someone is sure to deduce that the sentence is really:

“He said that that ‘that’ that that woman said should have been ‘which.’”

After discovering the pattern, the second one becomes easier.

Show slide with “It was and I said not but.”

The punctuation that helps this reading is: “It was ‘and’ I said, not ‘but.’”


Five Words:

Challenge your class to list the five words in the English language that ends in “cion” The five words are: Suspicion, coercion, epinicion, scion, internecion.


Sports That Take You Backwards:

Challenge your class to list three sports which the winning player goes backward They are Rowing, backstroke, swimming and tug-of-war.


The Taxi Driver:

The amount of information we give others while communicating with them, can really have an impact on the result of the communication. This quick fun energizer can make that point crystal clear.

Tell your class that you will tell them a short story and then ask them one question to see how good they were paying attention.

Start off your story by telling your class participants “Imagine you are a taxi driver” This is crucial to make this icebreaker work.

 Continue the story as follows: 

You are driving downtown and suddenly you get a call to go pick up a customer from one of the big hotels in the middle of the city. You were only two blocks away so you get there very quickly and picked up the customer who was standing in front of the hotel. You ask the customer where he wants to go and he tells you that he is a foreigner, he is attending a conference here in town and it’s his first time to visit your country. He wants to do some sightseeing today and asks you to recommend places he can go to. You recommend a few places and recommended to start with the museum downtown first and he asked you to take him there. He also asked if you were available to show him around town for the rest of the day.

On the way to the museum, your customer receives a call on his cell phone. It’s one of his colleagues attending the convention with him and is staying at the same hotel and he wants to join, so you go back to the hotel to pick up his colleague and drove them both to the museum. After the museum, your two passengers asked you to recommend a place where they can try the local food. You recommended a great local food restaurant that’s famous for local authentic cuisine. They loved the food and after the meal they said they actually ate too much and both agreed that they were too tired now and would prefer to go back to the hotel and probably continue sightseeing tomorrow. You took them back to the hotel and gave them your direct cell phone number to call you directly tomorrow if they decide to continue with the sightseeing tour.

When you have finished the story ask participants this one question: what was the name of the taxi driver?

Did any of your participants get the right answer? Probably not

Why didn’t they know the answer, even though you told them what it was at the very beginning? (The first thing you said was “Imagine you are a taxi driver” so whatever your name is, that’s the name of the taxi driver)

They didn’t know the answer because the story overloaded them with information. If we give out too much irrelevant information, the real message gets buried and our colleague/customer/boss/Friend or whoever we are communicating with will probably miss the point. To ensure your message is communicated clearly, stick to the essential facts.


Spell Energizer

"You may not belief that there are six errers in this short paragraph. Studi the paragraph carefuly. You can reed it as many times as necessary. Don't give up too easily. See if you can find all of them."

Write the previous paragraph on a slide or a flip chart and challenge participants to find all 6. Most participants will find five but few will ever find the sixth. The sixth is simply that there are only five errors (so it’s an error to say there are six). The exercise points out how we often think inflexibly and fail to consider all the options when problem solving.


45 second countdown - A snappy review exercise

Two teams/two flipcharts, one participant form each team goes to one flip chart. The teams compete by remembering words/key concepts that were discussed in class today. The team that comes up with the longer list in 45 seconds wins.


Questions Bucket

Another way to constantly review the topics covered in your training material is that whenever you finish a segment/module, pass out post-it notes and ask participants to write questions about the covered material, add a few questions of your own that are not related to the training like “What was the best trip you ever been on” or “The one holiday destination you must go back to”.

Add all questions to a bucket or box and Throughout the session, pass around the questions bucket and ask participants to pull out a random question and answer it. Since they don’t know what kind of question they will be getting, this is one way to ensure they’re paying attention and also provides a way for you to review the content and test their information retention.


Snowball fight evaluations

Getting participants honest feedback is a challenge for every trainer, add a twist of fun by turning it into a snowball fight by following these instructions:

Tell participants that it’s time for evaluations, but rather than filling the old style evaluation sheets, we will do it in a much more fun way. Also confirm that input from all participants will remain anonymous so they can write whatever they wish.

Ask each participant to list two columns on a sheet of paper one represents the positive things about the training and the other for things that need improvement. Participants are given 3 minutes to do this, then after they finish, instruct everyone to wad their papers into balls and start a “snowball fight.” Wait a couple of minutes till the papers are thoroughly randomized then ask each participant to pick up one paper and read it out to the group.
