Tons of big, huge, huge prompts!

Sometimes you just need a little prompt to serve your purpose, but other times you need a bunch of big, HUGE, GIANT suggestions! To get your students thinking big, we have a gigantic list of 50 gigantic (colossal, enormous) prompts below, with another 50 huge (immense, mammoth) prompts on offer at the bottom of this article.

Here are five exercises you could use giant pointers for:

  • Exercise for the giant mime team: Have students work together to mime lifting a huge object, all at the same time. What if someone starts to wobble and lose their grip?
  • Painting scene: Divide students into groups of four. Have them create a frozen picture where one or more students are giant and the rest are miniature.
  • Playwriting exercise: Write a scene where a detective has to track down a criminal mastermind. The criminal mastermind steals huge objects using a chemical compound that makes objects small.
  • Stage Challenge: Using the premise from the Playwriting Exercise above, answer the following questions:
    • How would you stage the miniature object?
    • How would you stage the same item in a giant form?
    • How would you stage the transformation of the article from giant to tiny (or vice versa)?
  • Improvement exercise: Improvise a scene where the characters get lost in a giant location.
