Before the class begins, print the word FRIENDS in large bubble letters about 2 inches high.
Give each child a paper with the word FRIENDS printed on it and a dark-coloured pencil.
Ask children to use the pencil to colour all the letters. This may take a few minutes.
Once they are done, ask them to rub the letters with their fingers to make sure the graphite of the word FRIENDS fades.
Continue and tell the children that the friends they choose in life can have a significant impact on their behavior. Friends can influence them on the type of clothing they wear, the type of music they listen to, what they believe, the words they use when they speak, how they treat others and so on. In other words, friends can rub off on them.
