Activity Instructions:

  1. Have the students brainstorm about some activities that they currently do or might enjoy doing (art, music, dance, sports, volunteer work, etc.).
  2. Using the planner handout, have the students fill in on the calendar when these activities are happening now or when they could best be scheduled.
