20 Minutes  

Step 1: Instructions 

Time: 8-10 minutes

  1. Ask the students to make a list of people they see as a part of their society: farmers, children, teachers, parents, drivers, house cleaners, grandparents, construction workers, etc.  They can choose minimum 6 and maximum 10 roles. They can create a circle as shown in the figure.
  2. Ask them to discover links between roles. Students must figure out how each is dependent upon the other. They can observe these roles at home for 3-4 days and then create this linking web. For example, the farmer might depend on the construction worker to build a new house or farm and the construction worker might depend on the farmer to produce food for him to eat. 
  3. After observation, students will create a circle with roles and show links for all roles listed. Ask them to try to create as many connections as possible.

Step 3: Debrief (to be done after HW activity is done) 

Time: 8-10 mins

Ask students the following questions to debrief the activity: 

  1. Imagine if we remove one or two roles in between. What will happen? (Some needs will remain unsatisfied, chaos, etc.)
  2. What did we learn from this activity? 

Reflection Sheets, Activity Report & Feedback Form
