Leader Resource 1: Right and Wrong Skits

Copy this page. Cut apart the different skits and assign them to groups.

Knowledge Skit

Your job as a small group is to create a skit that shows how new knowledge can change a right into a wrong or a wrong into a right. Here is an example: Many years ago, painting a house with lead-based paint was the right thing to do. Today, we know that lead-based paint causes health problems, so using it is the wrong thing to do. Make up a skit about that, or about any other way that knowledge changes what people think is right or wrong. Prepare to share the skit with the other small groups.

Consequences Skit

Your job as a small group is to create a skit that shows how the consequences of an act can change a right into a wrong or a wrong into a right. Here is an example: Breaking into a house is wrong. But if you are lost and starving in the woods, breaking into a camp could be the right thing to do. Make up a skit about that or any other way that the consequences of an act can change it from wrong to right or right to wrong. Prepare to share the skit with the other small groups.

Age Skit

Your job as a small group is to create a skit showing how a person's age can change a right into a wrong or a wrong into a right. Here is an example: Leaving a two-year-old alone at home for even a short time is morally wrong. But leaving a sixteen-year-old alone for a short time is usually acceptable. Make up a skit about that or any other way that age can change something right into something wrong or something wrong into something right. Prepare to share the skit with the other small groups.

Culture Skit

Your job as a small group is to create a skit showing how different cultures can change a right into a wrong or a wrong into a right. Here is an example: In America, it is right for women to drive cars. But in some Mideast countries, it is wrong. Make up a skit about that or any other way that being in different cultures can change a right into a wrong or a wrong into a right. Prepare to share the skit with the other small groups.

Situation Skit

Your job as a small group is to create a skit showing how different situations can change a right into a wrong or a wrong into a right. Here is an example: Telling a lie is wrong. But if a kidnap victim lies to get free, then that lie is right. Make up a skit about that or any other way that a situation can change something right into something wrong or something wrong into something right. Prepare to share the skit with other small groups.
