    Great and quick way for everyone to have a voice in describing / encapsulating their experiences when you are short on time. This could be used for just an activity or for longer periods of time.. Eg Debrief at the end of a days camp or at the end of an experience eg week of camp.

    I like the second part that allows for further exploring on the 1 or 2 words that might have been said on the first round. Doing so in two parts allows for more active listening of everyone around the circle as one doesn’t have to think of a new concept, but just needs to expand on what they originally expressed.
