Names and Balls

This is a version of the game “Passing the Ball” that has been adapted to help people learn each other’s names. Everyone stands in a circle. One person throws the ball to another and says their name. The second person throws the ball to a third person and says their name, and so on. The ball is supposed to reach each person in the group once. If someone has already had the ball they should put their hands behind their backs after throwing it as a sign that they should not be passed the ball again. Everyone should remember who threw the ball to them and who they threw it to. The passing continues in the same order, always calling out the person the ball is being passed to. But, more and more balls are thrown into the game…
