Penny Story Telling

  1. Collect a number of pennies with different dates on them.

  2. Pass them out to so that every participant gets one.

  3. The idea is to look at the date and try to think of a story that happened to them in the year that is on the penny. For example, if the date on the penny is 1984, the person has to try to think of something that they did or that happened to them that year.

  4. It will be important to make sure that the dates are relevant to the participants. For example, if everyone is under 20, then a coin with 1967 will have little meaning for them.
