A great celebration is not the same for everyone. By sharing what your ideal party would be like, you can also reveal a little about yourself.
Celebration, Individuality, Fellowship, Icebreaker
Approximately 10 minutes
What you do during class:
Break up into small groups of about four or five. Give each student a copy of the "Let's Party" handout. Students will go down the list to plan their ideal party or celebration, by choosing only one of the two options. When finished, they will share their selections with the other members of their group.
