● The activity aims to enhance participants' creativity and imagination as they write their own sentences to contribute to the story based on the chosen topic. This encourages them to think outside the box and come up with unique ideas.

● By collectively forming a story from individual sentences, the activity promotes collaboration and teamwork among participants.


Expected Results

● Through the activity, participants are expected to expand their creative thinking skills by generating imaginative and unique sentences that contribute to the story.

● By working together to form a coherent story, participants will develop stronger collaboration and teamwork skills.
Overview of Activity
In the middle is a box with multiple sheets of paper on various subjects. The topic of the story is revealed when a participant is chosen to pick a card from the box. The drafting of a story based on the selected topic is then started by all participants. Every person adds one sentence to the story to advance it. When everyone has finished, the facilitator gathers the sentences and puts them in order to create a logical narrative. After that, the story is read aloud so that everyone can take in the fantastic tale they have all worked so hard to create. This practice fosters a sense of excitement and participation in the craft of storytelling while encouraging creativity, cooperation, and effective communication.
