Inter-active OBJECT lesson
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: Being a leader is making smart decisions, being proactive, and doing things without being told. This object lesson is going to teach the kids in your class to not just sit there, but to start doing things!
WHAT YOU NEED: A swivel office chair.
- Pick one contestant to play the game
- Have the contestant sit in the chair (up as high as it will go) and answer the Who Wants To Be A Leader questions, in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire style.
- The answers have (*) at the end.
SPIRITUAL APPLICATION: Leadership involves thinking like a leader. When presented with a choice you can choose to take the lazy route or the proactive path. Being a leader involves hard work. It is not just bossing other people around. It is choosing the best direction to take. Many times people think that being a leader is a title and everyone else does the work. A leader starts early, finishes late and takes responsibility for the job.
