I’ve always been a fan of the “25 Things You May Not Know About Me” lists that are found in popular tabloid magazines. It is fun reading interesting facts about celebrities. That’s when an idea occurred to me…why not bring that fun into the classroom? This activity is great for an opening of school activity to get to know your students or for later in the year when you want to be surprised to learn new things about the kids you teach every day.
Students will have the opportunity to create a list with 25 surprising facts about themselves. Even you--the teacher--will be able to complete a list. Want to bump things up a notch? Directions are included for creating a poster project based on the "25 Things" list as well as directions for using this activity for researching an author or a historical figure.
What is included in your download:
*A Sample from the Author
*A "25 Things You May Not Know About Your Teacher" list for you to complete
*"25 Things You May Not Know About Me" Student Activity Sheets
*Optional Poster Project Directions
*Optional Historical Figure or Author Research Directions with Forms
