Computer and projector or TV to show the video Each group should have camera's or phones capable of recording video
Find a video of the ice bucket challenge that is appropriate for, and you think will resonate with your group e.g. The 50 Best Celebrity ALS Ice Bucket Challenges
- Step 1: Show a video clip of people doing the Ice Bucket Challenge
- Step 2: Ask everyone to think about a cause, problem or an issue that they think is worth fighting for (similar to how the Ice Bucket Challenge was originally raising awareness and money for ALS / Lou Gherig's Disease)
- Step 3: After some brainstorming ask the individuals to partner in a group. Partner in groups of 3-6, depending on the size of your group.
- Step 4: Ask the groups to narrow down to 2 topics that they think are relevant in today’s society, or in the organization.
- Step 5: Each group must now create their own unique challenge, this could be a peanut butter to the face or dancing like a monkey. The possibilities are endless, but the goal is to create an opportunity for people to build positive working relationships.
- Step 6: Ask each group to record a video of them doing this challenge or demonstrate this challenge to the entire group and to explain why they chose their issue and challenge.
- Have Fun!
