Type: Improv, Creativity
Purpose: A simple game that helps kids work together and be creative at the same time.
1. Ask two students to take the stage and link arms.
2. They are now a two-headed monster. As a two-headed monster, they talk in one-word turns, keeping the same personality.
4. Ask the class for a suggestion of an “object” or “place”.
5. 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.
