Christian Icebreakers - Splitting Youth Into Groups: Make a Word Christian Icebreakers - Splitting Youth Into Groups: Make a Word Presentation Transcript

  • Christian Icebreakers - Splitting Youth Into Groups: Make a Word www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • Introduction Use this activity to introduce a topic and divide the youth into small groups or teams at the same time. Game Description Youth will break into groups with the each youth forming one of the letters of a keyword. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • Game Preparation Think about a keyword somehow related to the topic of discussion for your youth Bible Study or discussion. There will be one group member for each letter in the keyword, so if you want groups of 5 youth then you will need to come up with a word that contains 5 letters. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • Game Play Here is a sample dialogue 1. “Everyone please stand up. “ 2. “I am going to give you a special word for the day. The word is _______. On the count of three, everyone shout the word back to me! 1 2 3 Ok, now say it twice as loud. Great! Three times louder! What is the Word? Great!” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • 3. “Next, when I give you the signal I want everyone to split into groups, with each youth using his or her body to form ONE letter of the word. As an example, everyone make a letter ‘A’ Great well done. If you don’t have enough youth to form all the letters, you might have to be a little more creative to spell the word with your bodies.” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • 4. “Does everyone understand? Do you know what you need to do? Are you ready? Go! Spell out the word with your bodies. And, DON’T be the last group to form the word. “ www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • Variations You can choose to have a fun forfeit for the group that is last or you can also make them go first when you have the follow-up youth discussion or activity. You can also call out different words of different lengths so that the youth are forced to keep forming and reforming groups to spell out different words until you call out a last word to get the youth into the final groups of the desired number. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
  • Take it to the Next Level Once you have them in groups of the desired number of youth, you can play games, have discussions, etc. This is a great way to introduce a topic because you have implanted the keyword into the thoughts of the youth. It also creates some energy and makes the awkward task of breaking up the youth into groups so much easier. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com CreativeIcebreakers.com
