Description
Participants will try to copy the poses of athletes in the various Youth Olympic Sports as shown in the Logos for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.

Resources

  • For some great photo opportunities have a few cameras available!
  • You can get the sports logos as individual images from the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympics website
  • They are also shown as a single image at the top of this post. Here is a list of the 26 sports included in the first youth Olympic Games in Singapore.
    1. Aquatics
    2. Archery
    3. Athletics
    4. Badminton
    5. Basketball
    6. Boxing
    7. Canoe-Kayak
    8. Cycling
    9. Equestrian
    10. Fencing
    11. Football
    12. Gymnastics
    13. Handball
    14. Hockey
    15. Judo
    16. Modern Pentathlon
    17. Rowing
    18. Sailing
    19. Shooting

    21. Taekwondo
    22. Tennis
    23. Triathlon
    24. Weightlifting
    25. Wrestling
    26. Volleyball

Preparation

  1. Cut out the images and mount them on colored pieces of construction paper or notecards.
  2. To make it more fun, you may want to add additional photos from the specific sports with people midair and in crazy positions.

What to Do

Divide the group into teams. You can play with this in a variety of ways:

  • Randomly draw from the logo images. Have all groups imitate the same image. The first group to get in the same pose as the chosen image gets a point. To make it more difficult, allow only one participant from each group to see the image and then they must go back and form their group into the correct pose.
  • Randomly deal the images to the groups face down so they cannot see them. Provide a judge for each group that will decide if the group is close enough to the original image before moving on to the next. The first group to complete all the images first wins.
  • Make it a relay race, where group members must run to the other side of the room, grab an image and then emulate it before the next person from the group can go. The first group to have all persons go wins!
  • Give each group a camera and make it a photo scavenger hunt. Give each group a collection of photos involving props, positions, and even locations that they must duplicate with the group. The first group to complete the assignment and return with the most correct photos wins!

Variations

  • Make props available for each of the sports. Teams must also include the props.

Taking it to the Next Level


For good and for bad, we often imitate others in life. Sometimes this can be a positive thing when others have qualities or traits that we wish to develop in our own lives. At other times it can be stifling as we try to fit into roles and expectations instead of being the person we were created to be.

  • Are there people in your life you would like to imitate? Name some of your role models.
  • Who are the people you aspire to be like?
  • Is it important to have role models? Why or why not?
  • How do you draw a balance between being the unique person you were created to be and expectations that society expects us to conform to?
  • What are some of the qualities you would like to imitate from a role model? How can you develop these qualities?
  • If you don’t have a mentor or role model, who is someone that has the qualities, skills or experience to help you in your personal development?
  • Is there an area of your life where you have simply been conforming to what is expected rather then expressing your unique self? If you were not concerned about other people’s expectations and what other people think, what is something you would change about yourself?

Application

  • Choose a trait or quality you want to develop and find a role model or mentor to help you develop that in your own life.
  • Choose a trait or quality that you have stifled because of expectations that you can begin to develop and learn to express in a positive way.
