In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite everyone to gather to play a game. Say something like "The first part of the game is the Sorts game." Explain that you will offer two contrasting choices and the group has to move either East or West of the room (e.g. "Do you prefer Target or Walmart?"). Then you will throw out two more choices and they will move South and North. That way, everyone moves somewhere and can't get "lost" in the crowd. Sorts that work well include: movie/book; salty/sweet; dress up/casual; inside/outside; be on the stage performing/in the audience watching, like school/like reading at home; like watching sports/playing sports; math or English homework. Choices should not reflect opposites but different activities, etc. Ask questions rapidly.
After playing for two minutes, invite the group to suggest any additional sorts. Play for another minute. Then bring them together and ask:
Accommodate children with physical limitations. Assist groups to form around a child who has less mobility.
