  1. Present the group with a tray containing a number of random items.
  2. Depending on how many items there are on the tray, give them a set number of minutes to observe it.
  3. Take the tray away and ask the group to make a list of the items on a piece of paper. They must do this individually.
  4. The goal is to remember as many things as possible, training the memory for performance.

TIPS: This exercise can be used for any age group. With older groups it might be useful to have a much larger number of items on a table, which can be covered by a cloth when you want to hide it.

VARIATIONS: After writing the list of recalled items, put the lists away and ask the group to name items out loud from memory. Anyone can contribute. As a group it is likely that almost all the items can be recalled. After recalling the items, use them as stimuli for improvisational games or storytelling.
