Unity Pencils

Items needed

  • about a dozen pencils

I used this to teach how unity strengthens us and dis-unity weakens us.

Have a YW take a pencil and break it. Talk about how it was easy to break because it was only one pencil.

Then get several pencils (10 or so) and have a YW try to break them. It's very hard.

Talk about how, when we stand together we are strong and hard to break, but when we stand alone, we are easy to break.

I used this to illustrate how when the YW are not unified, the ones that are left out are easy to "break" because they stand alone with no one to help them.

We used it to talk about specific girls that felt left out had had gone in-active, but that can be tailored to each class. In our class that worked, but it may not be appropriate to mention specific names in other classes.
