Description of Activity

Remind participants that this is a time for them to record their own ideas about Today's Big Question in their notebooks.

Distribute the notebooks and pencils or pens. Remind participants of Today's Big Question. Tell them they will have about five minutes to 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. Assure them that the notebooks are private. You will keep them but not read them between sessions. The youth can take them home at the end of Riddle and Mystery, and they may wish to use them in connection with an activity suggested for the final session.
