Virtual Instant Challenge: Unexpected Mishaps

This week’s Virtual Instant Challenge is a performance-based activity and is all about mishaps that occur on a single day. Get a group of friends or Destination Imagination teammates together online and share your solutions with us using the hashtag #InstantChallenge.   

Challenge: Create and present a performance about a day when unexpected mishaps occur. Your performance should incorporate up to four mishaps. (See setup section below for more information on the mishaps.) Your performance should explain why, on this day, the mishaps occur. Your performance should explain what happens to people in a set of photos after the mishaps occur.

Setup: Decide on a virtual meeting time with your team. Once the team is together, click here to see the five mishaps to include in your performance. (Mishaps are located on page 2.)

Time: 4 minutes to review the five mishaps and plan your performance; 3 minutes to present your performance.


A. 5 points for each mishap (20 points maximum) used in the performance.
B. 5 points for each explanation (20 points maximum) of what happens to the people after the mishap
C. 10 points if your story has a beginning, a middle, and an end
D. Up to 20 points for the creativity of your story about a day of mishaps
E. Up to 20 points for how well your team worked together

Reflection Questions:

  1. How did the group decide to incorporate all the photos into one performance?
  2. Which of the photos your team chose was the most difficult to work into the performance? Which was the easiest?
  3. What made your story creative?
