Tapestry of Faith: Heeding the Call: A Program on Justicemaking for Junior High School Youth

Alternate Activity 2: Rubber Chicken Toss

Activity time: 20 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Two bed sheets
  • Rubber Chicken

Description of Activity

Youth play a cooperative game.

Fold one sheet in half. Space participants evenly around the sheet and have them toss the rubber chicken up and down on the sheet. Then divide the group into two teams. Give the second team another folded sheet and ask the teams to pass the chicken back and forth. Participants can call out "faster" or "slower" or create any variation they chose.

Process the activity by asking how well the teams cooperated and what made cooperation easier or harder. Ask what real life implications they discovered about cooperating.
