(TOPIC: LEADERSHIP & TEAMWORK)
EVERYONE PICKS SOMEONE TO BE THEIR BODYGUARD, AND SOMEBODY TO BE THEIR ASSASSIN. (DON’T SAY OUT LOUD WHO PICKED WHO FOR WHAT.)
GAME STARTS, AND EVERYONE MOVES AROUND THE ROOM, TRYING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM THEIR ASSASSIN, BY TRYING TO KEEP THEIR BODYGUARD BETWEEN THEMSELVES AND THEIR ASSASSIN.
AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES OF CHAOS EVERYONE CAN TRY TO GUESS IF THEY WERE SOMEONE ELSE’S ASSASSIN OR BODY GUARD. THEN EACH PERSON CAN REVEAL WHO WAS PICKED FOR WHAT.
DEBRIEF: GETTING STUDENTS ENERGIZED AT THE START OF A DAY OR LESSON. DEBRIEF COULD INVOLVE TALKING ABOUT INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND THAT OUR ACTIONS USUALLY INFLUENCE OTHER PEOPLE.
