Background

“Tracking Your Past” is a homework activity where students interview someone who has known them most of their life about themselves.  Students love this activity because it feels like a gift to be reminded or affirmed of various aspects about themselves.  We suggest setting “Tracking Your Past” as homework after the intro lesson. We think it serves as a good way to get students thinking about who they are and how they have grown over the years. Some of the answers might help them to come up with the values and characteristics that are explored in the following activities.

On the back of the activity sheet, students can also create a Wayfinder “Journey Map” to reflect and process their life’s experiences in a visual way. This piece of the toolkit works well when used as part of the “Understanding Your Island” portion of the curriculum. It encourages students to think about their life as a fluid and constantly changing flow with arcs and turns. This visual will help them as they approach the following activities.
