It's normal for students' relationships to change. While some friendships just drift apart, others may end abruptly. It’s important that students learn how they can best deal with these changes and understand that they are natural. Equip students with the skills to adapt and cope with these changes and help them to develop social resilience.
- Students examine different ways of dealing with changes in friendships and other relationships.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to:
- identify healthy ways to adapt when friendships end and change
- explain the importance of friendships
- reflect on their own relationships.
Individual thought dump 15 min
- Ask students: Why do friendships end and change?
- Students list their answers in their workbooks.
- Discuss with students that there is no one reason why friendships end and change. There may have been a difference of opinion, or a friend may have changed schools, or an argument may have occurred that can’t be resolved. The reason for the friendship breakdown is likely to impact on how we cope with it.
