Talk in turn
< 10 mins
Speak and listen
This is a great way to ensure everyone gets a say in what the unit does.
- Ask everyone to sit in a circle.
- While passing a ball, around ask each person to say one thing they would like to do in just one, five or ten words.
- Only the girl holding the ball may speak. They could do it with their eyes closed or sitting facing outwards so they’re not influenced by others.
- Take it further: use this activity in Patrols or Sixes or as part of a Rainbow Chat or Brownie Pow-wow.
Decision-making can sometimes result in disagreements. Learn more about managing challenges from girls with our Guiding Conversation on behaviour.
