Icebreakers are little exercises that help relax tension and loosen up a formal atmosphere in a meeting where you want creative ideas and group participation.

In this icebreaker, one person is sent out of the room. The rest of the people pick a common phrase, movie title, or quote. Split up the phrase so each person in the room gets a word. For the phrase "A rolling stone gathers no moss," one person would get the word "rolling," someone else would get "stone," and so on. You can omit the little words such as a, in, it, the, etc.

Now, invite the person back into the room. They can then ask people questions, such as "What color is your hair?" The person must answer the question and incorporate their secret word. For example, if your word was 'rolling' you might say, "Well, I was rolling down the street in my car when I noticed in the rearview mirror that I had a grey hair, but normally it's brown." Be creative! The question-asker must figure out the original phrase by deciphering which words are assigned to each player.

We have learned how the Phonetic Mnemonic System can be used to remember words, concepts, dates, numbers, and more. The only drawback to this system is that it takes a little time to learn. Let's practice! If you need to look at the chart a few times, go ahead.

Translate these numbers into their equivalent phonetic words:
99 = puppy
8 = ?
92 = ?
334 = ?
70 = ?
73914 = ?

Now, translate the following words into their equivalent numbers:

Try = 14
Meadow = ?
Lodge = ?
Practice = ?
Elbow = ?
Chocolate = ?
