“When you first meet someone, what do you want to know about him/her?”
- When a new child comes to your class what would you like to know about him/her?
- What are the first things you ask a child that joins your friends’ group?
The facilitator writes down the statements on cards and posts them on a flipchart. The answers can then be categorised by the group under sections such as origin, culture, hobbies, dreams etc. The class discussion can address the issue of whether there are similarities between the answers and why we need to have this information. This activity can be used to define individual and social identity and serves as an introduction to other activities regarding the integration of diversity.
