Prior to beginning this activity the facilitator should cut out photos or articles reprinted from sources such as newspapers, magazines, or create a PowerPoint slideshow that depicts situations where insurance would be advantageous. Examples might include: flooded home, fire, auto accident, obituary notice, person in hospital, crime victim or injury on the job.
The facilitator should begin this activity by:
Holding up photos, articles, or show the PowerPoint slideshow. Ask participants how they could minimize risk in each of these situations.

Facilitator Tip: Answers should include auto, disability, homeowners, liability, life and renters insurance.
