Purpose

Learn good communication skills and cooperation.

Description

Make an arrangement of various objects (such as blocks, school supplies, or household items) without letting the youth see it. Divide the youth into teams, and give each team the materials needed to create the same arrangement. Allow one member of each team to see it. This team member can describe the arrangement to a second team member but to no one else. The second team member can communicate with the rest of the team only by answering their yes-or-no questions. If necessary, the second team member can return to the first team member for more information. When all of the groups feel they are done, they compare their arrangements to the original. What can this activity teach the youth about leadership and communication? How might it represent prophets and revelation?
