Activity 3: Tag-a-long (10 minutes), Workshop 1: The Call for Awareness

In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program

Preparation for Activity

  • If your meeting room does not have enough space to play this game, find an outdoor space close by.

Description of Activity

Youth illustrate influencing others with a game.

Invite participants to play a game of tag. This is a variation, called "tag-a-long." In tag-a-long, when "it" catches you, you join hands and become part of "it." The first person caught will join hands with "it," the next person holds hands with the first one caught, and so on, forming a chain of "its". Play continues until everyone is part of "it."

After playing, ask the group if this game has anything in common with the other activities today. They will probably mention the Spheres of Influence. Ask if the game has anything to do with "awareness." Mention the idea that their perspectives play a part in what they become aware of. Ask if their perspectives and awareness were different when they were runners from when they were "it"?
