Great Group Games: 175 Boredom Busting, Zero-Prep Team Builders for All Ages by Susan Ragsdale and Ann Saylor.
Whether coordinating a 20 minute homeroom period, a four hour bus ride to camp, or an all day retreat, group leaders will appreciate this wide array of solutions for keeping young people upbeat, engaged, and unified. Icebreakers, games, and think-about-it/talk-about-it activities provide opportunities for staging meaningful and fun interactions. Participants are encouraged to think for themselves, work within a team, and follow-through to ensure trusting relationships. Organized in easy-to-reference sections that offer options for adapting to group sizes and ages, Great Group Games is appropriate for a wide range of people, session times, and age levels-and will help groups at all stages, from establishing relationships to celebrating long-standing partnerships.
