|1st Activity - Who me?||Get the young people to split into 2’s with someone they feel they know quite well. Give each person a blank blue sheet and a blank green sheet. The blue sheet is entitled "Who me?" and is used for questions they fill out about themselves. The green sheet is for questions they fill out about their partner. Ask them to sit back to back with their partner and they must not discuss the question sheets as they fill them in. After 5-10 mins get them to turn back to their partner and discuss what they put out themselves and about their partner. Get them to see if their answers matched up or where different. Open up some discussion on whether their perception of themselves was the same as their partners. See if anyone can suggest why this is and record these answers on the white board.||25 mins|
