Rock, Paper, Scissors

There are a countless number of conflicts that happen each day.  Who will be the line leader, who got to the drinking fountain first, who gets the last cookie, who will be team captain, who gets to take the equipment out.  Rock, Paper, Scissors is an easy way for youth to resolve conflict.  In this game, rock crushes scissors, scissors cut paper, and paper covers rock.  Counting one, two, and then on the count of three the youth make the sign of rock, paper, scissors with their hands.  If both choose the same sign, they play again.  The tension is broken and the decision made.  Youth have resolved the conflict and are ready to move forward.
