Alike & Different is a chance to see and celebrate the places where you and your family are alike and different!

Use the Alike & Different worksheet to help you find at least one thing that’s similar and one thing that’s different for each person in the family. You might try to find things that you don’t already know about each other.

See how many you can find in five minutes.

Try Alike & Different with your family or other groups — perhaps at a family gathering, with a camp cabin, or at an office retreat.

“Things we do for fun” is a great category to start with. Other categories you might try:

  • If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you like to go?
  • What games do you want to play next?
  • How do you like to get to know new acquaintances?
  • What can we do to improve our [school, office, cabin]?
  • What helps you stay calm when problems arise?
