This is a great activity because it opens up the conversation about digital citizenship. Conversations like:
- What makes a good friend?
- Do you like how your portraying your friendships online?
- What kind of friend are you?
- What do you like about how you share your friendships?
- What might you do differently after thinking about this?
- Why is important to say thank you and express kindness in social media?
- What are some other ways we can let people know they are appreciated?
Not only is this a fun conversation starter, it's a great way to look back on those in our lives and how we share these memories with others.
