A getting to know you activity with heart.
I plan to use this activity as weekly homework for 2-3 students per week during the first term of the school year.
Students need to think deeply about an event in their life that best fits the three headings; a hero moment, a highlight and a hardship. Each should be a defining moment in their lives.
A hero moment would be a moment when someone in their lives inspired them or encouraged them to achieve something big. A Highlight would be a big highlight of their life so far - an achievement, a holiday etc and a hardship would be something sad or hard they have faced so far.
The general aim is to bring the class together by sharing and learning more about one anthers lives. I have made this worksheet after hearing about this idea from the Richmond Football club, which they used during the premiership season to help bring the team together and build comradely between the players.
