your group, make up a conversation for these scenarios. You can
write your conversation down so that you will remember it. When
each group is ready, you can act out the scenario for the other
Dave is forty: he has a government job and works long hours. He’s
not very active, nor in good shape. He’s often short of breath.
He and his wife go to the doctor’s office. The doctor tells
him he needs to be more active.
Johnny is an elder. He used to go hunting and fishing, but now
he stays home and watches TV. The more he sits around, the stiffer
he gets. His son and daughter are worried about him and think he
should be more active.
Your friend has never been active and she eats food that’s
not very healthy. Now she’s starting to put on weight. You
and your other friend think she should be more active but you know
she needs help to get started.
You are members of the Recreation Committee and you want to get
the community more active. You are talking about some of the things
you might do.
