Alternate Activity 2: Creating Challenges for Ethics Play (10 minutes), Session 15: Saving The World

In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Paper and pencils

Preparation for Activity

  • Review what your group has done to date with Ethics Play.

Description of Activity

In this activity, small groups of participants make up new Ethics Play situations. The activity assumes that your group has done Ethics Play activities from time to time, if not at every session. You might wish to do this instead of Activity 1: Ethics Play, above.

Before leading the activity, review the directions in Activity 4 of Session 1: Introducing Virtue and Sin. Remind the group of its experiences with Ethics Play, and ask youth to work in small groups to create new situations to use in Session 16. Say that the situations should be realistic for people of their age.

Divide the youth into small groups of three or four. Distribute pencil and papers so the youth can write their ideas.

Do not share the ideas aloud at this time. Instead, collect them, review them as you can for appropriateness, and save them to use during Session 16: Look at Me, World.
