Community Level 1 – Acquainted
Materials: A bag of Skittles or similar-style candies
How to Play: Each player takes a candy (their firefly) out of the
bag and hides it in her hand. After all players have their fireflies,
they walk around silently giving each other a peek at the color of their
candy. When they find a color match they travel together finding more
matching fireflies. Once all players have found friends, each group
reveals its color.
Plan for Success: Remind players that this is a silent game.
Variations: To extend this activity, make a human
graph of the number of each color, or students can make sentences using
the number of their colored candies.
