If you want to have fun and explore thinking and mental models with a
group, "Ask and answer (?) the question, if a grape at its current size
were large enough to feed a family of four one meal, how big would the
people be?" If you come up with an answer, then come up with some kind of
visual representation using commonly available materials that people will
always remember as connected to the family of four feeding on the grape.
It's a fun exercise and, in addition to dialogue and mental models, the
kind that easily and quickly takes you to outside the box thinking.
By the way, if you have challenge or opportunity to deal with, you can
find an answer to it no matter what the situation is after you have
successfully done the grape exercise.
