Wool connections

Sitting in a circle, give a ball of wool to someone.
That person says something about themselves and then anyone who can agree, throw the ball to and connect the wool around a finger.
Once the connection stops break off the wool and start a new thought with someone else.
Ask individuals to explain their connection
At the end of the task lay the strings of wool on the floor and comment on the shape and patterns the wool makes.
(Using different colour wool for each new connection enable you to better see the different connections)
A scribe can record the connections on paper

Try and split into small groups of 4 or 5 where you all shared the same connection
Agree on 3 still images that will represent what all of you in the group have in common.
Show this back to the rest of the group and see what they observe.
