Hand Up Stand Up Pair Up

Type of strategy: Openers & Get to Know You

This is a quick way to pair up learners into partners for an activity.


Ask a question to the group.

Each member puts their hand up, stands up and walks to another person with their hand up.

The two pair up by giving a High Five.

They become a pair and answer the question.

 After each person has shared they repeat the process fining a new partner.
