FREE Download: Live and Learn Life Lessons Class Activity for End of the Year or Any Time! - Common Core Aligned

This is an inspirational, fun, and rewarding activity to share with your students!

Several years ago I was inspired by a little book called "Live and Learn and Pass It On" by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. His idea was to have others jot down the lessons they have learned in life. He compiled all these lessons into a book, identifying each only with the person's age.

I thought it would be neat to see what my students could come up with at the end of the year. It's been such a positive experience that I wanted to share it with other teachers. Each year I read examples from the past to my students before they write their own. Year after year I get funny ones, sad ones, and some shocking ones, too. It's a great way to wrap up your semester, year, at any age or grade level!

Other uses for this activity: compile a collection for graduating seniors, a retiring teacher (have students write what they have learned about life from that particular teacher), or advice for a new teacher. The possibilities are endless and it's such a positive and fun way to end the term.

I updated the activity to include a literature & history component. Includes Common Core standards for use in language arts or history/social studies classroom.
