The Distorted Telephone
Request five volunteers from the group and ask them to leave the classroom. The remaining participants are shown a short story through mime and then the story is read to them. The first volunteer is then asked to enter and they are shown the mime. The second volunteer is brought in and the first volunteer has to mime the story for them and so on. When there are no volunteers left outside the classroom, the last person is asked to explain what they understood and they are read the original story. The group reflects on what has happened during the activity and the difficulties they had understanding the other person.
