Looking for a project to do the first week of school with your students? This project will allow your students to demonstrate their writing and artistic skills while getting to know their classmates. Students receive a template with flip flops and are asked to briefly write using details and imagery about 5 activities they completed this summer in their shoes. It could be as simple as walking the dog, seeing their favorite movie, etc. Students can then illustrate the activity and decorate the flip flops. They can use their flip flops to get to know their classmates. This project is a great discussion starter for empathy. What is it like to walk in someone else's shoes?
The presentation is editable which means you can add your information directly onto the blank slides by using text boxes.
The presentation includes the following slides:
