Friendship: 3-2-1 BRIDGE Final response

On finishing this topic about friendship we revisited the 3-2-1 Bridge thinking routine. We tried to think of 3 words, 2 questions and 1 simile about friendship.

This is our final response to the routine.

Group 1

Group 1

This was our initial response.

Group 1

This is what Group 2 came up with.

Group 2

And this was the Initial response.

It's really interesting how after reading, watching and discussing, new thoughts and ideas about friendship came to the fore. Friendship is indeed about brotherhood, love, support, fun, happiness. But we found out on the way that it is also about rejecting, abandoning, judging, betraying, excluding for various reasons. These may have to do with many issues, but some of the ones you think are important have to do with: appearance, disability, coming from another country, being a very good or a bad student. 

Why don't you want me?
Because I'm ugly, too short, fat
or from another country?
Do you reject me?

It is also really interesting that many of you when we repeated the routine believe that empathy is important when we think and talk about friendship.

We had to imagine we are reporters. We had to write HEADLINES for the topic of friendship. We chose what we felt was most important for us.
