Alternate Activity 1: Notable Thoughts (5 minutes), Session Speaking of Fair: Speaking of Fair

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Bag or box containing participants' Big Questions notebooks (see Session 1, Alternate Activity 1, Notable Thoughts)
  • Blank notebooks for new participants
  • Pencils or pens
  • Masking tape

Description of Activity

Notable Thoughts is the first Alternate Activity in each session of Riddle and Mystery. Remind participants that this is a time for them to record their own ideas about today's Big Question. Distribute participants' notebooks and pencils or pens. Provide any new participants with notebooks. Say that the notebooks are private; you will keep them between sessions but not read them.

Tell the youth they will have about five minutes. Remind them of today's Big Question: "Is life fair?" Say they can write about anything they want. Their ideas can be as different as they wish from what you have talked about so far. If youth have nothing to record, they are free to doodle or relax.

Give them a few minutes to work quietly in their notebooks. When time is up, offer that they may seal their notebooks with masking tape before handing them in. Collect the notebooks.
