Great Group Games
My first book, Great Group Games is officially in bookstores this month, and I'm thrilled with the finished product! I hope you will share the book with teachers, pastors, and youth workers that might be able to use it. The cheapest place to buy it is $10.91 at half.com, but you can see product reviews here. Thanks for helping me spread the word!
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.
