Each participant needs pen and paper. Aim to is find words and then spell out those words doing exercises that correspond to letters.
This can be done online (share Boggle image screen on Zoom or send prior) or face-to-face (hand out printout or put on large whiteboard). Can also be done as individuals, small teams (eg breakout rooms on Zoom) or as large group, taking it in turns for someone to call out word.
- Zoom or face-to-face session, split group into small teams. Get them to work together for the session. Two winners at the end are for (i) most words in total and (ii) longest word found (get out of ‘Finisher’ burpees).

About the entrant:
I’m a ‘Word of Mouth’ group (and personal) trainer based in Melbourne, Australia, running sessions on the beach and surrounds. I fit my work around my big care role for two young boys and a mother with Alzheimer’s. My work is a pleasurable outlet and although I don’t have the time to invest in growth now, I have a bucket load of ideas for when that time comes, especially after learning a heap of new skills via online training and connecting to this awesome group during this lockdown period. Every cloud has a silver lining! 😉
