Teaching Games: Tongues of Fire

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

Tongues of FireThis icebreaker is great as a small group starter and doesn’t actually involve fire.

Give the invitation to take on a selection of ‘tongues of fire’ challenges. Categories could include: Speed alphabet recital, speed count to 30, speed reading a set passage, longest “Aarrgh” noise with 1 breath, longest whistle, most words in 1 breath, ‘toy boat’ tongue twister champ…

A great game to use for teaching on the power of the tongue and James 3.
