Description of Activity

Participants play a game replicating real-life situations involving ethical decisions.

At the end of the game, ask if participants carefully considered the consequences of their actions. Could any of the decisions have resulted in punishment? Who would have handed out the punishment? What might it have been?

Including All Participants

If some participants have limited mobility, you might wish to have the group remain seated, or at least give individuals a choice between standing and sitting when they speak.
