Response Cards Activity

Activity Purpose

This is a revision, reflection, and discovery activity. It’s an interesting alternative to asking questions to participants, with the trainer writing the answers on a flip chart.

Unlike the flip-chart activity, this activity gives everyone a chance to provide an answer.


Activity Instructions

1. Ask an open-ended question and ask each participant to write their answer on a card. Please give them a suitable time limit.

2. Separate the participants into small groups of 4 to 6 people per group.

3. Collect the responses from each team and give them to another group.

4. Ask each group to select two responses: the ‘best’ one and the response that is the most different from the others. Please give them a suitable time limit.

5. Ask each team to read the responses they selected.

6. Comment and discuss each response.


The Benefits of this activity

  • This activity gives participants time for reflection.
  • It is a good way to involve even the shyest participants, who would not answer in front of the whole class otherwise.
