ChangingFamilyPatternsWorking in groups of 3 or 4, make a list of the members of your extended family – grandparents, aunts, cousins etc.

  • How far away from you do they live?
  • How often do you see them?
  • What kind of contact do you have with them?
  • Have they helped each other at times of crisis?

In a group, pool your results. Discuss how important the extended family is for you and your classmates.
