Product Description

This is a fun, interactive activity I did with all of my students the first week of school that incorporates creativity, writing, and speaking and listening. Students are given a brown paper lunch bag and are asked to: decorate the bag, put 5 things that describe them in the bag, write 1 paragraph describing each thing in the bag, and finally stand up on the due date and show their 5 items, describing 1 of them in detail. I made this worth their first summative grade to really kick them off on a positive foot. I also did the project with them, so that no one would have to present "first". It includes a grading rubric, directions, and the speaking and listening standard I associated it with.
