This activity encourages critical thinking and higher order questioning by having students write their own 6-word memoir. The lesson is a SMARTboard file, so you can edit it to fit your needs!
Started by Ernest Hemingway and popularized in the book "Not Quite What I Was Planning," students will write a story about their lives. The only catch - they can only use 6 words!
In my classroom, I had my students draw an illustration to accompany their six word memoir. We bound the memoirs in a book, and we also encouraged parents to contribute their own six-word memoir.
