Aphorisms by Ben Franklin

Ben Franklin wrote lots of aphorisms, or short witty sayings about life, hard work, education, integrity, and more. This activity will take a class period. It includes 40 Aphorisms with unique activity to get students moving around the room, interacting with others' opinions, and thinking about how these aphorisms relate to today's times. Students will also work together to determine Franklin's values based on commonalities among his aphorisms.

I did this activity when I was observed by a team of evaluators checking out my awesome school, and they loved it! The students did too! You will be surprised at how well your students relate to these sayings from the 1800s. Ben Franklin was so amazing and wise!
