Ask students to share any changes they might have. Highlight any changes that result in more balance between the types of activities expressed from 1 perfect day to 7 perfect days. For students whose perfect days involve only one or two types of activities, follow up by asking how they'd feel missing out on the other types. For example, how would they feel not seeing their family for a week? Or not having any alone time? Or not spending time outdoors?
