Game: Change one more thing

Average: 2 (1 vote)

The students can learn that it is easy to talk about change and its necessity. But its not so easy to do 

Step 1

Make pairs. The couple with their backs to each other, the younger partner is given the task to change one item on his apperiance . The pairs are turning to each other, the older partner finds out what the younger partner has changed . If he does not find out, the younger partner names the change. 
The task repeats the trainer 4, 5, 6 times.

(It is increasingly difficult to change something . Small changes fall slightly, big changes are severe.)

Step 2

Reflect with the students the exercise. Use such questions: Why is it always harder to change something more during of the game?

How is it, if you wanted to change something in your lifeWhat can you learn from the game?
