Goal: To explore examples of nonverbal communication, and to examine how nonverbal signals might be read differently by different individuals.


Time: 10 minutes


1. Divide the class into groups of five to seven students.


2. Write an example of nonverbal communication on a slip of paper, and give it to one person in each group. Have that person act out the nonverbal behavior for the group, while students in the group name the meaning of each nonverbal signal.


3. Time each group to determine which one conveys the nonverbal signal the fastest.
