In "Amazing Grace," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity asks youth to move around and show their answers to some belief questions based Sessions 4 through 8 of Amazing Grace: Exploring Right and Wrong.
Ask the youth to help move aside any chairs or other furniture that might prevent easy motion. Explain that you are going to play wall-to-wall questions. You will ask a series of questions and you want the youth to show their answers by choosing and moving to one of two opposite walls. Say that there are only two choices for each question, yes or no; standing in the middle is not an option.
Show the youth the two walls where they are to go in response to the questions. Then ask the questions from the following list, stating after each question which wall represents which answer. Give youth a chance to talk about each question and their responses before moving on to the next one.
Do you believe...
If some of your participants have limited mobility, devise a different way for the group to make their choices known. They might use a thumbs-up for yes and thumbs-down for no. Alternately, you could provide everyone with two differently colored index cards: blue for yes and yellow for no, for example. Do not, however, assume that a youth using a wheelchair or crutches would not enjoy the movement of this activity as much as any other youth.
