Choice & Accountability 2 and Integrity 1

For the Strength of Youth Cranium:

Last summer, our stake young women leaders challenged all the young women to read the entire For the Strength of Youth (FSOY) pamphlet. The girls have to read FSOY anyway in order to pass off Choice & Accountability 2 and Integrity 1. We did not read the entire FSOY at this activity, but my goal was to help them get started.



This was one of my favorite activities. It turned out to be fun and the girls seemed to like it. Several of them asked questions about standards and some of them gave examples of how they follow standards.


Here's what you'll need:

  1. Playing cards. You can download mine here
  2. A copy of the For Strength of Youth pamphlet, which you will need to highlight. If you look at the cards, they will show you which color to highlight each section. 
  3. Two cartons of Play-doh. Three if you're shopping with young children.
  4. Word strips of some mixed up words. The words you'll need are in the cards (each card in the "zelpuz" category). The word in the above picture is "education," for those of you who are like me and can't move on until you've figured it out.


Here's how it worked: We divided into two groups. I drew a card, then invited one player from each team to come up play the card for their own team. Each card gives instructions on how play that round, gets a point, then has to read the highlighted section of FSOY aloud. 


The key part was reading the highlighted section out loud. That's when the girls talked to each other about standards and asked questions.

  1. I am planning on doing this as an activity tomorrow night. It is such a great idea! I was wondering what the different colors of highlighting are for so that I may be able to explain why they are highlighting in different colors? Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas!

    2. Hi, it says that EACH CARD will tell you which color to Highlight. I know this question was from a long time ago, hope this helps more people like myself that can try this in the future!

  9. I love this idea, but I'm a little confused on the rules and what to highlight. Do I read one card to the two players from each team and the two teams are racing to complete it first? Is there a time limit on how long they play each card?

  42. We did this for a combined activity tonight. We are new in our ward and my husband and I immediately got called as YM and YW presidents. Our youth are not super committed and don't have a lot of support from home and they don't get really excited about activities but tonight they all stayed and participated all the way to the end. For where we are, that is a huge success. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas!

    1. If you click on her link, it takes you to a PDF in Dropbox. You can choose not to use Dropbox by clicking No Thanks somewhere near the bottom of the page and then click Download at the top. :)

  69. I am a little confused with the highlighting and the rules of the game as well. Could you please explain the game a little more. I can get the cards no problem. Thanks in advance.

  70. I noticed in your Work and Self-Reliance picture there was one paragraph that had two areas highlighted blue. In that example would both those highlighted areas be read in one turn or did you direct them to read a specific area? Which I guess brings me to another question. Did you leave it up to them to find what needed to be read or did you give it to them? I am thinking about doing this activity next week and want to make sure I am clear before doing it. By the way, I love this idea and appreciate your willingness to share.
