||Purpose of Roots Activity:
|To identify the important people who provide you
with your foundation and then label them on your tree.
| As Dr. Jane discovered in her life,
her family and friends continued to support her because she
kept them involved in her life and let them know that she cared
for them even though she was thousands of miles away in Africa.

support you. This list might include relatives, caregivers,
friends, coaches, teachers, and neighbors. It could also include
animals. Do you have a favorite piece of music, art, or poem,
or a place in nature where you like to spend time? Add all of
these to the roots of your tree.
||Write a letter to someone on this
list and let that person know that you are thinking of him or
her and thank him or her for supporting you.

birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations of your supporters.
