Product Description
Materials/Product Overview:

This is an interesting and empowering learning activity that allows children (as well as adults) to begin to explore their individuality.

The activity was designed for 4th to 8th grade children but can also be used in a HS or college setting. I have personally used this form of the activity with my 6th to 8th grade classes, but you can use it as you deem fit. This is a great way to initiate parental involvement in a child’s education.

I should also point out that there are two forms of the activity provided. One was designed for the teacher to collect group data and the second was designed for students to research their name as well as their family and friends. You can use either or both. Do as you please, please. I’ve also provided some vocabulary and language cards that you can cut out and post or share with your students. This is not required at all but you know. ?

Lastly, there is also a completed sample provided purely for demonstrative purposes. Thank you and enjoy!

Remember… our names have power and they are a prelude to our identity!
