Lesson 6 117 Copyright 2023 Marline E. Pearson ❖ Hold up cards: I have 6 cards, each one describes a healthy or unhealthy relationship in more detail. We’ll do an activity with these cards to explore healthy vs. unhealthy relationships more deeply. Divide into 6 groups. It works best to have each group gathered around a table. You can also limit it to 5 groups if you need to since you will show the one on sex, status, or material things as an example. Pass out a card, bag of materials, and a paper plate to each group. Continue with the directions: ❖ Each group has a card that describes one of the six types of relationships. Three are healthy, and three are unhealthy, corresponding to the three questions. ❖ There are two steps here. First, one person reads the card aloud to the group and then discusses these questions: • Have you ever seen a relationship like this? What kind of behaviors would you see in this type of relationship? • What is it like/would it be like to be around them? • If you were in that type of relationship, how would it feel? ❖ Secondly, after your discussion, use the materials in the bag and make a sculpture that represents that relationship. ❖ (PP) Here’s an example of what one group made for their sculpture. Read the bullets on the slide. ❖ Put the directions slide back up. Remind them to discuss the questions first before beginning their sculpture. ❖ Have fun. This isn’t about great art or making things look real. Use your imagination. Think about symbols and images. Activity: Relationship Sculptures
