When I explain speed learning to the students, it is inevitable that one of them will say is this like the learning version of speed dating, and the answer is, Yes! One of the issues that I try to address in the classroom is to have each student talking with the other students about their academic work. If you have students in groups, some will dominate and some will play wall flower. With speed learning, students are challenged to have several one on one conversations with the other students. I communicate a defined outcome as well as a time limit to help focus the discussions.
To play this lively and exciting game you will need these three items, salted crackers, string, and as many news paper rolls as there are people. If you include the preparations as part of the activity it allows people to talk and get to know each other before the game starts.
Make It Yours is a game that moves fast, if players aren’t paying attention. Perfect for Christian youth groups and for classroom activities , this game helps everyone work together to change the game.

For this one you will need a penny and a timer. Divide your group into 7 even teams and have them sit opposite of each other at a long table or if there is not a long enough table, make them face each other cross legged on the floor. Give the first person in each group a penny and assign one of the groups as The SMACKers.
These next bits of instructions are meant to happen very quickly… On the count of 8 everyone in both groups shout “Show!” Tell Me More!
Instead, these ideas happen late at night, as I’m laying in bed, calculating the hours of sleep I’ll get (and consequently planning my next day’s nap), when I’m driving to the school in the morning, thinking of how “eh” my current plan sounds, halfway through the school day when I’ve already taught the lesson to half my classes and realize how lame it actually is, or sometimes even a whole unit later, when I get random inspiration and mentally file an amorphous idea in the “maybe next year” corner of my brain the list goes on.
All you need to get started is a soft role of Toilet Paper. Start by passing the TP around or setting it down at a sign-in table. Then Tell Me More!

Copy Cat requires quick reflexes and amazing observational skills and is an absolutely fun game to play with any size of a group.
When you’re copying others, you have to look at what others are doing and really be observant. This team building activity also works well as an ice breaker since you can begin to see what others see in people. You can learn how others learn and observe the world.
To begin playing this game, have the group form a circle standing Tell Me More!
This game is absolutely perfect for family events such as reunions, birthday parties and family nights as well as christian youth nights, activity days at schools and you could even use this really wild game at a company party.
