Gallant is the good son and Goofus is the bad son - harking back to the Highlight Magazine series I always read at the dentist office waiting room. Goofus & Gallant game 1. Take the activity topic from the previous poster. 2. Tell us what Gallant would do then tell us what Goofus would do. 3. Give an activity topic for the next poster. Example: Post A: Going to church Post B: Gallant- is proud to be an alter boy and goes to church regularly. Goofus- takes money from the collection plate and buys candy. Next activity topic: Washing the car Now the next poster gives their version of what Goofus and Gallant would do.
