The back-to-back drawing communication exercise will get your groups and couples working together, talking, and thinking about how they communicate. Groups are split into pairs of "listeners" and "speakers". The speaker will describe an image for the listener to draw, but the listener cannot speak. Neither person can see the other's paper.
Completion of the back-to-back drawing exercise creates a segue for many important communication topics. What's the role of a listener in good communication? What happens when a speaker isn't careful? How might they be misunderstood?
The Back-to-Back Drawing printout includes instructions, discussion questions, and several images for use during the activity.
