Great first day activity with middle schoolers. Print on Astrobrights for an immediate pop of personalized color in the classroom.
Have the students hole punch and connect their pennants with brads and you can hang a whole class with just a few tacks!
* 4 Pennants in PDF. These are labeled: 6th (2 versions); 7th; and 8th grade.
* A fully editable Powerpoint for teachers who would like to personalize their pennants.
After completing, get the kids up and moving by taking a few minutes for "Two Walls": Group your students on either side of the room based on the This or That section. The kids enjoy seeing who shares their preferences and it breaks the ice in a fun, low-stress way. I usually offer each student to share his or her adjective, as well.
