The Social Side - Activity 3
To help you find out more about your chosen issue, here are some questions for you to consider. You don't need to answer them all, they are here to help guide you to complete this activity.
- What is the cause of your issue, why does it happen?
- How does the issue make you feel?
- What does the issue look like? What are the symptoms?
- What do you already know about the issue?
- What information would be useful to find out to convince people why the issue is important?
- Why is the issue important to you?
You may choose to help an issue related to the current situation or another issue entirely. The decision is yours, but do always please consider your own health, well-being and safety when taking action.
You are more than welcome to complete the activities in a pair or in a group, either within your own family or indeed if you are attending a Hub School.
Choose one of these ideas or even better, come up with a creative idea of your own to show your learning.
