Here’s one of the discussion starters that I sometimes use. It’s useful to get people talking to each other, and warms the group up a bit. Of course you can adapt the text.
Everyone needs to stand up and move around the room freely. The idea is for everyone to go round asking people in the workshop or session if they “own a pet” for example. If they say yes, you can write their name in the box and move on to find a different person who ticks a different box. If the person says no, then you can go around asking other people until you find someone who owns a pet. You can then get back together as a group and have a chat about the exercise and maybe learn some more interesting facts about each other.
