- Divide larger groups into small groups
Sometimes you want to mix up a large group into smaller groups, but don’t want people to just join their friends. Climer Cards makes that process fun and easy. Give each person a card. Ask everyone to find others in the room with the same shape, color, or number. Each deck includes:
5 different shapes (groups of 10)
10 numbers (groups of 5)
6 colors (groups of 8-9)
You can also use for pairings, create smaller groups, or come up with new combinations.
“I carry my Climer Cards with me whenever I am presenting a workshop. They are the perfect companion for a facilitator. I use the cards to help engage those students who have hung back during discussions or to switch up the debrief process. I am amazed at the insights and answers students will give even from the simplest of processing as “Pick a card that represents the day.” Even at a basic level these cards deliver great results but the potential for engaging discussions goes far beyond that. If you are a serious facilitator these are a must have.”
