Product Description
Sure, everyone knows that Valentine's Day and Black History Month are celebrated in February, but have you ever heard of "Get a New Name Day"? It is celebrated on February 13th. Let’s face it…people do not get to choose their names when they are born. While some people may love the name they were given, others may loathe it or simply be indifferent. This activity allows every student in your class to select a new name (for pretend, of course), practice filling out forms such as petitions and social security cards, and create passports and business cards. Simply print pp. 3-13 of this packet for each student.

Optional: Create a cute class bulletin board by displaying your students’ passports and business cards.
