3- 5 minutes long Goals: To always keep the blue doughnut on the ground to keep the pink one from touching the ground ,and For the maximum team building benefits, always keep the number of light sources just shy of enough to go around, that is one for each player. Suggest teams pick a time keeper and after 5 minutes, also a leader. Adjust team sizes, props, and goals, but always require the outcome be reliant upon color recognition and be played in the dark. Works best if inner tubes and glowing props are different colors. (The key scientific factor here is light absorption). Any

How We Behave in Groups Falling vs. Dropping Fall down in a public place and see how many people come to check on you. At another time, get down in the middle of the floor and pretend you are looking for a lost contact lens or piece of jewelry. Which situation do you think would bring more assistance. Why? Social Science Social Science How We Behave in Groups How We Behave in Groups Heres a fun thing to do in social groups. Make up a fairly realistic news story, and ask the others about it.

For example: "Did anyone see that story about the State Representative that was in that hit and run accident this morning? 1out of 5 people will say yes. Then ask: "Did you see what state he was from?" 1 out of 5 of those people will provide an answer. Many people will tell little white lies just to look knowledgeable. Social Mapping Can you map your social world? On pieces of scratch paper, write down a word, topic, title, idea or phrase. Each person

contributes five. Fold them up and drop them in a basket, box or hat. SPARK a Reaction Select a score keeper. Divide into two teams. Each team selects a time keeper who minds the play clock while the opposing team is in play. The team with the youngest person goes first, but the oldest player goes first. Playing the Greatest Game in the Universe Round #1 Charades Time keeper starts the clock for 30 seconds. Draw a clue from the box and act it out for your team

mates. No sounds allowed. Same rules as Charades apply here. As soon as they guess it correctly, draw another clue and keep going until the time keeper calls it. Tally the points and return all the clues to SPARK a Reaction Playing the Greatest Game in the Universe Continue with the same order of play, but with these new rules. Describe the clue without using any word(s) or any forms of the word(s) in the clue. How many clues can your team get right in 30 seconds? Each correct clue earns the team one

point. Continue play, rotating teams until all clues have been guessed. Round #2 Taboo Style Return all clues to the box and get ready for Round #3. Same routine only now these rules apply. By saying just one word per clue, how many clues can your team get correct in 30 seconds? Each correct guess earns a point. SPARK a Reaction
