Description of Activity

Remind participants that this is a time to record their own ideas about today's Big Question. Distribute participants' notebooks and pencils or pens. Provide new participants with notebooks. Say that the notebooks are private; you will keep them between sessions but not read them.

Tell participants they will have about five minutes. Remind them of today's Big Question: "What should I do with my life?" Say they can write about anything they want. If they have nothing to record, they are free to doodle or relax.

Give them a few minutes to work quietly in their notebooks. When time is up, they may seal their notebooks with masking tape before handing them in.
