Students create an “End of the School Year” memory bag within a brown lunch bag. This creative writing activity produces a valuable keepsake for your students that they will look back at and reflect on for years to come. The teacher and all the students in the class autograph everyone’s bag and then the fun begins as they reflect about the school year in the engaging activities.
