1. Preparation: Students bring in 5 items that are important to them
a) Instead of talking about themselves, the students (put in partners) interview each other about the items they brought and then they draw the items that are important to their friend.
b) They follow their friend to choice centers and do what their friend chose to do. Write a journal entry, write notes or draw what their friend was interested in doing.
c) Interview a friend to find out what they enjoy and how they meet their fun, power, freedom, belonging and survival needs. ie: what do they like to do for fun; what makes them feel powerful; what do they like to be free to do or choose; what makes them feel loved; what is their favourite food?
3. Prototype: thinking about all that you learned about your friend, make a gift for them that will make them feel happy or meet their needs.
4. Presentation: Give your gift to your friend and tell them why you made this specific item
5. Reflection: In your journal tell about the gift you received and how it made you feel. Tell what you made and how you felt when you gave the gift.
