A great way to have your students introduce themselves as well as people/pets that are/have been important to them. This activity is geared to a wide range of ability levels as the final product might contain only the immediate family, or be quite complex in nature. It really lends itself to a wide variety of presentation formats, from hand-created work, to electronically-generated products, or a combination of both. I have always allowed my students great freedom with this activity and have been pleasantly surprised with what I got. A subsequent sharing session as well as question-answer opportunities are always a possibility.
