Duration: 15 minutes/Group size: Any size
Clear the room and place enough chairs in a large circle for all but one participant.
- Have the first leader stand in the center of the circle while all the others are in the chairs. The leader asks teens to stand up if they ever had a certain experience, for example: “Stand up and find another chair if you ever felt embarrassed at airport security because you had a hole in your sock.”
- All those to whom the statement applied will stand and find another chair that is not immediately next to them, unless that is the only other chair available.
- The leader claims one of the empty chairs and one person will be left standing. This person is the new leader and repeats the process.
- The process is repeated until there are no chairs left.
