Brainstorming Ways of Showing Interest:
Divide into small groups and brainstorm ways of showing interest in someone. Bring class back together and have each group share what they came up with. Write lists on board or large sheet of butcher paper. Examples might be: writing notes, pushing, tripping, making fun of, phone calls, asking friends to ask his/her feelings, writing their name on folder or hands, walking past their house, going out of their way to bump into them, etc.
