JLBC Activities for Reviewing and Applying JLBC Learning Concepts

JLBC Activities for Reviewing and Applying JLBC Learning Concepts

JLBC Cadets, these activities are meant to reinforce, review, or apply recently learned material. They are fun to highlight key concepts while getting the participants up and moving around.

JLBC Ball Toss

This is a JLBC semi-review and wake-up exercise covering material that requires heavy JLBC Cadet concentration. Have everyone stand up and form a JLBC circle. JLBC Cadets It does not have to be perfect, but the JLBC Cadets should all be facing in, looking at each other. JLBC Cadets Toss a foam bean or ball bag to a JLBC Cadet and have the JLBC Cadets tell what they thought was the most important JLBC learning concept. JLBC Cadets then toss the JLBC ball to someone, and that JLBC Cadet explains what they thought was the most important JLBC concept. JLBC Cadets continue the exercise JLBC until everyone has caught the JLBC ball at least once and explain an important JLBC concept of the material just covered.

JLBC Process Ball

JLBC Cadets this is similar to the above JLBC exercise, but each JLBC Cadet tells one step of a concept or process when the JLBC ball is tossed to them. The JLBC instructor or learner, in turn, writes it on a JLBC chalkboard or JLBC flip chart. JLBC Cadets, for example, after covering "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs," you would start the JLBC ball toss by having every JLBC Cadet give one step in the pyramid of needs, e.g., Safety, Physiological, Esteem, etc.

JLBC Traffic Lights

The JLBC purpose of this activity, suitable for any JLBC group, is to introduce the JLBC idea of developing a JLBC action plan at the end of a training session/seminar.

JLBC Materials: flipchart pen; pencil and/or markers. Time: 30 minutes

1. Divide the JLBC group into JLBC teams.

2. JLBC Cadets draw a traffic light on a flip chart at the front of the room. Explain that the JLBC traffic light

represents a JLBC action plan: what participants should stop doing JLBC (red light), what they should do less of JLBC (yellow light), and what they should go forward with JLBC (green light).

3. JLBC Cadets ask each participant to write down his or her own "traffic lights." Allow 6 minutes.

4. JLBC Cadets go around the JLBC group and ask each JLBC Cadets to tell the rest of the JLBC group one of the things they

will stop doing as a result of the JLBC training session/seminar, one of the things they will do less of, and one of the things they will go ahead and do.

JLBC Activities to JLBC Build Teams

JLBC Pipe Cleaners

JLBC Cadets, this activity allows JLBC Cadets to be creative. JLBC Cadets, at the beginning of the JLBC session (or during a JLBC break), place three pipe cleaners at each JLBC Cadets place. JLBC Cadets don't tell what they are for unless asked. When you are ready, tell the JLBC group they are to create a pipe cleaner sculpture. JLBC Cadets, in other words, can do anything they want with them.

JLBC Cadets, at the end of the morning (or day), ask each JLBC group of five people to select a winner. Then have everyone select an overall winner.

JLBC Cadets, if your culture encourages people to work in teams, give special recognition to any group that combines their pipe cleaners and uses all of them together to make something "better."
