Description of the tool

Different steps need to be followed.

First of all, you form a circle with the participants. Then…
1/ everybody tell his/her own name and send the ball to somebody else - it is very important that everybody remember from whom he/she received the ball and to whom he/she sent it;
2/ after 2 times doing this, there is a third round where each participant should tell the name of the person he/she is sending the ball (instead of telling his/her own name);
3/ then there is a fourth round where the person who send the ball say the name of the person who receive it, run and take the place of this person and sit on the floor;
4/ then the group is ready for the challenge. You count the number of seconds they need, trying to be as fast as possible.
