Gather the participants into a circle at the end of the activity or at the end of the day.

Tell the participants that they should come up with an �onion� and an �apple� for the day or the activity they just completed.

An Onion is a part of the day or activity that they did not enjoy, something they disapproved, or an experience they did not particularly like.

An Apple is a positive experience, such as a something they liked about the day, a specific act of teamwork they observed, a compliment for someone else, or other positive comment.

It�s best to start the debrief with the �onion,� so each participant can end on a positive note.

You can also change the two categories. Here are some examples:

Roses and Thorns
Candy and Vegetables
  YES! Print all games and skits
