Explore the different influences in our lives and how they affect our opinions and our behaviour.
Piece of paper and a pen for each girl
PREPARATION: The Leader prepares a sample sheet, with her name in a circle in the centre and then she writes some of the people and things that influence her around this circle to use as an example for the activity
• Give each girl a piece of paper.
• Divide the Group into pairs
• Ask them to consider who influences their ideas and opinions.
• In the middle of the piece of paper they draw a circle and write their names in this circle. They write the people and things that most influence their ideas and opinions close to the circle and all other people and things that influence them further away from the circle. They discuss this with their partner or Six.
When this is complete have a group discussion about this topic. Discuss ‘Who or what is most important in influencing your ideas?'
NOTE TO LEADER: Examples of things that can influence the girls opinions include friends, family, especially parents, television, newspapers, etc.
