Weekly Tribes – Sharing from a (Mystery) Sack

This great idea comes from Joyce, a student in the current online class.

Sharing from a Sack (p. 330) Call it a Mystery Sack – put several objects in the sack. Have one member from each group draw from the sack. Keep it a mystery from the rest of the class. Each group must then come up with a short story in a skit or charades or any type of activity in front of the rest of the class and get them to guess what their object was. They are allowed to give clues. This would work in a drama class. It could also adapt to impromptu speaking – speak 1-2 min about the object. This could be a lot of fun for building inclusion and trusting relationships.

Make a curriculum connection and have the objects in the sack relate to topics currently being studied.
