Games with a Purpose
mixes energizing, entertaining games with learning points to create an invaluable resource that will provide a fun introduction to hundreds of staple topics. There is something to suit every situation--from games needing little or no preparation or equipment, to big, memorable games that will stay with the group for a long time.
The collection consists mainly of original game ideas. Unlike other resources that simply seek to provide entertainment, Games with a Purpose is categorized around popular topics providing youth workers with inspiration and ideas to help them include games as a core component of their sessions, rather than just as an add-on to dissipate surplus energy.
This book stands alone, but it is organized thematically as a companion to two popular discussion-starter resources, The Ideas Factory and The Think Tank. By pairing the games with the discussion starters, youth leaders will have all they need to build a complete lesson.
