Question and Wonder:
- What are your interests? Why do you think those things interest you? When did you start being interested in them?
- Would you call these interests hobbies? Why?
- What is a hobby?
- Does everybody have one?
Make a list of all the things you are interested. The things you do to pursue those interests are your hobbies, like playing sports, reading books, drawing or painting. All of these are hobbies!
Imagine and Design:
- What do you think are your hobbies based on this list? Why?
- What things do you need to explore your hobbies?
- Do you have family or friends that have the same hobbies?
- How could share your hobbies and interests with each other?
A club is a group of people that share interests. It is a great way to gather and talk about the things you like to do and to try new things with family and friends. Ask your family and friends if they would like to join a hobby club. Make a date for your first meeting (this could be in person or online). Be sure to have some supplies on hand to explore one of your hobbies with your group.
Test and Discuss:
- Did you choose a name for your club? What is it?
- What did you talk about? Why?
- Will you practice your hobbies at your meetings? Try new ones?
- How do you think this club will help you to learn about your family and friends?
