Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Amazing Grace: A Program about Exploring Right and Wrong for Grade 6

Leader Resource 5: Ethics Play Scenario 4 - Family

Part of Amazing Grace

There are six Ethics Play scenarios. Scenarios stand alone from the themes of any particular session, so you may use them with any session. The roll of the dice determines which scenario you use and which question you ask. Mark questions as you use them, to avoid repetition in future sessions. See Description of Activity for further directions.

  • It is your sister's turn to do laundry. When she complains of having too much homework, you volunteer to do the laundry. She does not thank you. While preparing the laundry, you find a dollar bill in your sister's pocket. What do you do?
  • Your brother likes a certain girl. However, the girl likes you more than him. She invites you to a party but says not to tell your brother and not to bring him. What do you do?
  • Your uncle just got a gas-eating car. You told him that was wrong the day he did it, and said you would never ever ride in it. Now he wants to take you to a movie in it. What do you do?
  • Your sister was driving the family car while you were in it. She hit another car and bent the fender badly. The accident was her fault but she told your parents it was not. You promised you would not tell your parents but now you are mad at her for something else. What do you do?
  • The pet cat you love is dying. Your parents will not pay $100 for medicine because they say the cat is so old it will die soon anyway. You have $175 in your account that you are saving for a bicycle. What do you do?
  • You stole some money at school. You did not mean to do that, but somebody left it in an open locker and suddenly it was in your pocket. You think your little sister knows and that she might be going to tell. What do you do?
