Activity: “Sausages!” (In honor of adventurous comediennes Lucille Ball & Lily Tomlin!)

“It” person starts in center of circle. One-at-a-time students in the circle ask appropriate questions, trying to get “It” to laugh. “It” responds to ALL questions with a serious look and the word “Sausages!” The “It” person who can last the longest in the circle before laughing wins!

Share: True/False share by Student of the Day.

Activity: Train Wreck “Adventure-Style”!

Sitting all in a circle, except the “it” person to start in the middle, students all think of the most adventurous thing they have done to-date. The “it” person begins saying, “The most adventurous thing I’ve done so far in my life is______.” If any seated students have also done that adventurous thing, they get up and move to another seat. They may not return to their original seat, or to either seat next to it. Play resumes with the new “it” person.

Wed 2/11

Daily News: Include “Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”
 J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Dumbledore to Harry)

Greeting: Secret Handshakes

Share: Share at least one (more if time allows) adventurous thing that you plan to do or that you REALLY want to do.

Activity: Swamp Crossing. Divide group into two teams. Give each team 3 "rocks" (whole sheets of scrap paper). Make a start and finish line and tell them that they must get their whole team across without touching the water (floor under the paper), using only these rocks to get across. They may move the rocks as they go, however, only one foot can be on a rock at a time.

Activity: “Honey, do you love me?”
Players form a circle with one player in the middle (it). The middle person must approach players in the circle and ask, "Honey, do you love me?" The person being questioned must answer, "Honey, I love you but I just can't smile." If s/he does smile or laugh, s/he becomes "it" and the previous middle person joins the circle. The person who is "it" is not allowed to touch other players but may make as many funny faces as s/he wishes.

Greeting: Mimic Greeting- Original student greets & neighbor mimics that greeting in response, then turns to their neighbor with a new greeting, which their neighbor in turn mimics, all the way around the circle.

Silent Share: Fan Mail- Each student puts their name atop a slip of paper. Slips get passed around the circle as each person writes a compliment, acknowledgement or praise on that slip (like we did in a previous Fac mtg.) Comment as long as time allows. Everyone might not get to write on everyone’s sheet.

  1. How Adventurous are you? (Rate yourself on each of these on a scale from 1-5. 1= No, not very much at all  5= ALL the way, very much!)

    1. It’s really easy for me to “do my own thing” and not be influenced by what other people think about it.

    2. I enjoy the thrill of risk and participating in high-risk activities.

    3. I do not worry about other people. I really expect everyone to be responsible for themselves.

    4. I am really good at “winning friends” and influencing people.

    5. I have to keep on the move & explore using whatever talents, skills, ingenuity, or wits I have.

    6. I would consider myself high-spirited and a mischief-maker.

    7. I would consider myself courageous, physically bold, and tough. I stand up to anyone who dares to take advantage of me.

    8. I live in the present & don’t feel guilty about the past or anxious about the future. I experience life now without any regrets really.
