Students worked hard all week? Do they deserve a special reward for a job well done? This activity will offer students a nice break from structured learning. Adapt it to fit your needs. Have some Friday Fun!
Teacher Rene Masden uses this activity to help students get to know one another -- and themselves. She arranges students into groups of three. She supplies them with a 3-circle Venn diagram. Students talk in their groups about themselves and the things they like to do. After a brief discussion, students document ways in which they are all alike, ways in which they are like one other in their small group, and ways in which they are totally unique.
