What Does Peace Mean?


What to do

Sit in a big circle.

Ask the group what they think the word peace means? Ask individuals to act out a mime of the words they suggest. Encourage them to think of positive words, not just about the absence of war.

Here are some suggestions to help if they get stuck:

  • Happiness
  • Friends
  • Family
  • Quiet
  • Sleep
  • Safety
  • Love
  • Making up
  • Saying sorry
  • Living together
  • Community
  • Caring
  • Calm
  • Silence

You could recap and get everyone to join in by repeating some of the words, and get everyone to mime the actions together. You could also write down your words and feelings into a poem or a song.
