Sometimes, group leaders like to do icebreakers to help new people meet each other. When you do this, it’s important to select an activity that is likely to be comfortable for everyone involved.
It’s usually better *not* to do activities that involve asking people to perform feats of memory. (For instance, one popular ice breaker involves arranging people in a circle and asking people to recite the name of every person who has gone before them.)
This is a bad idea because there will almost always be someone who is bad at memorizing large amount of information quickly. There will often be someone who is disabled in a way that makes this difficult, and who might not want to demonstrate their impairment to the whole group.
And even if disability isn’t an issue, no one wants to demonstrate in front of a group of people they just met that they’re bad at remembering names.
Ice breaker activities involving memorization are best avoided.
A rare natural phenomenon turns one of Austria’s most beautiful hiking trails into a 10 meter-deep lake, for half the year.
Located at the foot of the Hochschwab Mountains, in Tragoess, Styria, Green Lake is one of the most bizarre natural phenomena in the world. During the cold winter months, this place is almost completely dry, and used as a country park where hikers love to come and spend some time away from urban chaos. But as soon as temperatures rise, the snow and ice covering the mountaintops begin to melt, and the water pours down, filling the basin below with crystal-clear water.
Water levels go from one-two meters at most, to over 10 meters, in the early summer. The waters of Green Lake are highest in June, when this extraordinary place is invaded by divers, curious to see what a mountain park looks like underwater. Fish swimming over wooden benches, a grass-covered bottom, trees, roads, roads and even bridges create a surreal setting that feels like it belongs on dry ground. That’s because for half of the year, that’s exactly where it’s at.
While potential new members are trying to learn about the entire sorority, the active members are getting to know each PNM one by one. These are some great questions for actives to ask during recruitment to gain insight into the PNM’s personalities!
