Here is an engaging team building icebreaker to get your participants connecting and thinking. Participants are challenged to match the correct beginning and ending of quotes. When used in-person, it gets people up and moving, while talking about the topic of the day.
This idea came from Aimee Cooper, an internal facilitator at a federal agency, who has adapted this activity by changing the quotes to match her audience and topic.

In this engagement exercise, participants are challenged by asking them to match the ending and beginning of quotes. This engaging team building activity can be used at the beginning of a meeting or training to break the ice and engage the group.
