Materials Flash cards, markers, flip charts, gum/ tape.
Time 1 hour.
Process Invite the participants to sit in a circle. Ask them if they have
heard of the term “life skills”?

 What do they know about it?
Explain that all of us possess certain skills that allow us to live
our lives. For example, the skill to write, work with others or
make a decision.
Pass out one flash card to each participant, and ask him/her to
write the most important skill he/she possesses.
Allow the participants 5 minutes to do this exercise.
Invite the participants to display their cards on the floor. Ask
them to group similar cards.
Ask if the cards represent most of the skills required for
leading a healthy and productive life. If not, ask them to add
the remaining skills.
While the participants are busy doing their work, prepare
three flash cards with the headings – “All of us have”, “Some
of us have” and “None of us have”.
After the participants finish writing and grouping the flash
cards, ask them to arrange the flash cards in a horizontal line
on the floor.
Place the three cards, which you have prepared, in a vertical
line next to the horizontal line of cards. Once this is done, you
should be able to draw a matrix of rows and columns on the
