To each pair, you can add one person to be the observer. After one round, change roles.
Have the group perform the activity more than once, with different templates.
* The first time through the exercise the "drawing" person is not allowed to speak to the "direction giver."
* The third time, the drawer can ask any question they like.
In a large group setting, one person could be the direction giver; all the rest are drawers.
No one else is allowed to speak as they try to draw the shape the direction giver is describing.
Afterwards, have everyone compare their drawings.
Prepare two illustrations that are the same except for seven minor differences. For example, one shows a man with a moustache, in the other picture, that person does not have a moustache. One picture shows a bee above a flower. In the other picture, the flower is there without the bee.
Divide the group into pairs. Each pair sits back-to-back. Give each person in each pair a different of the picture. Each person is allowed to see only their own version. Each pair works together to discover the differences between their versions. They work on this by each one describing their picture to their partner.
