Group Cohesion

Group Cohesion

When a group cohesion is strong you can achieve amazing things in the classroom. Not to go down the psychology route too far, it's worth considering the impact of connecting your group to each other, having them commit to the shared experience and goals and supportive collaborations.

It's worth spending some time exploring these games.

About Me

Understand more about a group by discovering facts about them.

Change Places If ....

Test the listening skills of your group whilst getting to know more about them.

Doctor's Surgery

There's only spare seat in the waiting room and nobody wants you to sit in it! A great energy game promoting teamwork.

Grandmother's Footsteps

A firm favourite of younger players....creeping up on a suspicious Grandmother.

Sculptor & Clay

Mould and create a statue out of the clay of another person

Secret Leader

A game of teamwork and concentration where a detective must spot a secret leader also can help build dramatic tension.

Wink Murder

An old favourite to out-fox the detective and claim as many victims as possible.

Games could be a beginning starter, an introducing step during a workshop or as an end plenary. They are a platform for further development and are never meant to be the whole session on their own.

The nature of drama games is that they are shared, adapted and extended. The original author is not so important as the shared practice. You’ll find games on the site that you’ve seen before, called something different or that you even use in your own teaching toolkit.

We hope that among the known games are ideas of how to refresh old ones as well as new games to use.
