Melanie’s Friends

Melanie wants to fit in, so she stops hanging out with her old friends and starts hanging out with the cool kids at school.  She doesn’t stand up for her old friends when they get bullied.

Take the Quiz

Question 1: Why did Melanie tell Cassandra that she was talking to nobody when she actually was talking to Raven and Lasa?

I don’t think so. Try again.

Right. What kind of friend do you think Cassandra is to Melanie? How do you think Melanie feels about the situation?

I don’t think so. Melanie seems like she feels bad about insulting her friends.

Question 2: What do you think Melanie should have done when Cassandra saw her talking to her friends, Lasa and Raven?

Hmmm. That might hurt Lasa’s and Raven’s feelings. What else could she have done?

I don’t think that would have worked very well. What else might she have done?

This seems like the best answer. How hard do you think that would be for Melanie to do? Why?

Question 3: Why do you think that Bibi and Mimi had nightmares about Cassandra?

Exactly. Some friend, huh? True friends like you for who you are.

No. They seem to be happy to be in her group!

I doubt it. Try again.

Question 4: What do you think of Melanie’s new group of friends: Bibi, Mimi, and Cassandra?

Really? They seem kind of mean to me.

Me, too! Or I’d make up with Raven and Lasa!
