What Groups Do You Belong To?
When you were born, you were already part of many groups. These include being a human being, the member of a family, a citizen of a country and a neighbor.
Now that you’re a little older, the number of groups you belong to is even bigger. For example, if you go to school, you’re a member of a class of students. You might also be a member of the band or a sports team.
Here are some great reasons for joining a group:
Make friends. Being with people who do what you like to do is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
Learn new stuff. Whether it’s joining the band and playing an instrument or playing a sport, you have a chance to improve your skills and develop new ones.
Work as a team. There are lots of activities that give you a chance to work toward a common goal with other kids — whether the goal is winning a game or completing a community service.
Have fun. This is a really good reason to join a group! Kicking a ball, acting in a play, and camping with the scouts are just a few examples of ways to have fun in a group.
