Encourage girls to speak out on topics that really matter.
- Each girl has one minute to talk non-stop about a topic of her choice – this could be a favourite hobby or something she feels passionate about.
- If the speaker pauses for more than a few seconds the others shout ‘stop!’; if she repeats herself they shout ‘repetition!’; if she says ‘um’ or ‘er’ they shout ‘hesitation!’.
- If the speaker is interrupted, she sits down and it’s the next person’s turn. If not, she’s completed the game!
Discussing world issues can result in lively debate. Make sure everyone gets a say and manage any challenges from girls by following the guidance set out in our Guiding Conversation on behaviour.
