Learning each others names as quickly as possible can help build trust within your group. Here are 18 different name games for drama that help your students to learn the names of all of the other class members.
Example of a name game:
The Truth about Me
Have all students stand on one side of the room. One at a time, a person walks to the other side of the room and says, “My name is____________ and the truth about me is _____________________.” Anyone else who shares that same truth, walks to the other side of the room and joins that person. It can be anything, but encourage students to share something personal. “The truth about me is that I love to sing, but I only sing by myself,” is better than “The truth about me is that I like playing video games.” Lead by example, and share something that most people don’t know about you!
