Form activities:

Prepare in advance a string (or more) of Christmas lights all tangled together in a bundle. Challenge your class to untangle the bunch in one minute or less (while showing care not to damage the lights!). Increase the challenge by having them work together with each person keeping one arm behind their back. Afterwards, invite the group to think about how this activity might represent how some people see their lives this time of the year. While so many people are celebrating and the radio tells us this is “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” for some (including perhaps a few of your class) this is a season of brokenness, doubt, and hopelessness. Help your students identify where that brokenness might be manifest in their schools, your community, the world.
