(Reach out to Chris if you have a question for Mo - he'll forward your inquiry.)
Reminder: Be sure you are aware of all the relevant guidelines in your area for bringing groups together in one location - what are your local rules?
Adventure Learning Programs at the University of Wisconsin Madison (You can see Mo up by the white board at the ALPs web page!)
Team Building from 6 Feet Apart - Michelle Cummings was mentioned in the episode a few times. Here is a 66-minute video replay of an online workshop she presented.
Word Circle Puzzle Starter Kit - This print-n-play kit was mentioned by Mo during the episode. It is found at the FUNdoing Store. It includes 18 puzzle sets and 12 Presentation ideas. You can also find free puzzle sets at the FUNdoing.com/blog - search 'Word Circle Puzzles'
Alphabet City & City By Numbers - If you are familiar with the ZOOM Communication activity, these two books, by Stephen T. Johnson are used for the same process. Alphabet City has 26 images to use (you'll need to make colored copies for play) and City by Numbers has 21 images (numbers - you'll need to make copies). NOTE: Using these books for the Communication activity is a high level challenge. (I, Chris, have yet to use these books. I am very interested in talking with facilitators who have.)
ZOOM Communication Activity basics
ZOOM On the Spot Variation (video) mentioned in the episode
Reality Check 1 & 2 - Here is another ZOOM-like option from Metalog Training Tools. They are an investment, but a pretty cool alternative set of cards/pages. (NOTE: If you look closely at all the pictures on the site, you can actually connect both sets into a full circle configuration.)
Traffic Jam - Mo mentioned using this activity, just make sure the spots are 6-feet apart. And, she set up more of a 'V' shape so it was easier for her participants to communicate.
Body Part Debriefing - Place the parts in the center of a safely distanced circle of people. They can call out a part and talk about the connection.
Climer Cards (or any image cards) - Laminate the cards before play so you can disinfect them after the program.
