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 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 to respond to today's Big Question: "What is truth?" Say they can write about anything they want. If they 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, tell them they may seal their notebooks with masking tape before handing them in.
