Icebreakers/Warmups | Communication

Group Size

Medium | Large


Instruct Group members to line up in order of their birthdays, without talking.

  • Note: Use birthday month and day, but not year, if the participants may feel sensitive about age.


What was the experience like? How did you try to communicate? What made it work/not work? What could have been done differently? What did you learn about different people's styles?


  • Blindfold some or all participants
  • Use alternative criteria such as middle name (line up alphabetically), age . . . Or have each person choose an animal and all line up by the animals' sizes, smallest to largest.
  • Line up in order of length of time with the company.
