Type: Improv, Creativity
Purpose: A simple game that helps kids work together and be creative at the same time.
- Ask two students to take the stage and link arms.
- They are now a two-headed monster.
- As a two-headed monster, they talk in one-word turns, keeping the same personality.
- Ask the class for a suggestion of an “object” or “place”.
- The monster must tell a story about that object or place, making it up as they go along.
- Encourage the students to tell a story that has a beginning, middle and end.
- Encourage the students to make a strong physical and character choice for their monster.
- The “two-headed monster” can be used within any other improv activity.
- Instead of alternating word for word, the students from syllables and words at the same time.
- Consider trying a “three-headed” monster after the kids have become familiar with the activity.
