FRIDGES AND ANIMALS…?!?!

Ask the delegates to answer the following questions on paper, reviewing the answers to each question before moving on to ask the next question

QUESTION 1: How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

ANSWER: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door

This question tests whether they tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way

QUESTION 2 How would they put an elephant into a refrigerator?

WRONG ANSWER: Open the refrigerator then put in the elephant and close the door

CORRECT ANSWER: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door

This tests their ability to think through the repercussions of their actions

QUESTION 3: The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend except one. Which animal did not attend?

ANSWER: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator

This tests their memory

Even if they did not answer the first three questions correctly, they still have one more chance to show their abilities…

QUESTION 4: There is a river they must cross but it is inhabited by crocodiles. How would they manage it?

ANSWER: They swim across. All the crocodiles are attending the animal conference

This tests whether they learn quickly from their mistakes
