Balloon activity
Balloon is what we really are.Activity

Balloon represents a lie. When I say go, toss the balloon in the air and try to keep it in the air. If the balloon touches the ground, your lie has been discovered and you’re out.

  • What was it like trying to keep your lie going?

  • What strategies did you use to keep your lie going? Did any of you have someone get in the way of you keeping your lie aloft? How did that feel? Did it result in your lie hitting the floor or did you try to keep away from them?

  • When an untruth is discovered influences the perception of others about your worthiness of trust.

  • Are there different levels of lies—are some worse than others? Why or why not?

  • If you did something dishonest that was unlikely to be discovered for years how that would feel? What if it was never discovered? What if it was discovered but years later? How would that influence the perception of others? How would it influence the perception of yourself?
