The Game of Names in the Air

Names in the Air is a simple, fun and fast game to introduce the knowledge of the names of the people of the new groups in formation.

Gather your group so that everyone can see you. With your group facing you, ask them to hold up and extend the pointer finger of their dominant writing hand in front of themselves.

Then, by way of demonstration, use the space in front of you as if it was a wall to write your name using your finger in the air. Instruct each person to write their full name, using their finger as if writing on a wall in front of themselves.

Having mastered this task, instruct your group to write their name again but this time using the pointer finger of their other hand.

When ready, instruct your group to write their name in the air with their right elbow, and then their left elbow. If your group happens to be standing, then you have knees and feet just begging to be nominated!

To finish, each person draws their name in the air and says it out loud for everyone to hear.

Moment of Reflection
  • Was this exercise fun? Why or why not?
  • What approach did you take to writing your name? Small or big letters? Block or cursive, etc?
  • We don’t often show our silly sides to others in public. Why do you think this is?
  • What did you notice about those around you?
