Part 2 (the following class) - Ask students to sit in small groups and tell them that they should show the other classmates the picture they have taken of a very special gift they have gotten. They should tell an anecdote explaining why that gift is so important to them, who gave it to them, when they got it, etc. Encourage students to ask their classmates some follow-up questions in order to get more details about the anecdote.
