Team Building Exercise

There are a lot of team building exercises out there, but the one that I find to be the most fun and effective for adults and kids alike is called "It's Your Birthday".  This is especially good for big groups where many of the participants do not know everyone.  Someone is chosen to be the host/hostess and it is their party.  As host/hostess of the party this person has to introduce as many of the people in the room as they can.  The group then starts to interact with each other asking questions and finding out about the others in the group that they do not know.  After everyone has had a chance to mingle, do a quick hand count of who can name the most people.  This exercise shows how much easier it is to work together after you know at least a few names in the group.
