PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From Electric English...
This is a three day activity log that I created to accompany the reading for Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea". As you are aware, Santiago spends three days at sea bringing in his marlin… For the purposes of this activity, the students track their activities for the same amount of time, accounting for every moment of their time for three consecutive days. How do they spend their time? Are they fulfilled by their choices; do they add value to their overall well-being and add joy or positivity to their life and that of their family and friends. Time passes so quickly, as Santiago himself realizes… This activity gets the students to reflect on their own usage of time. Once they have completed the three day activity the students are then asked to reflect upon what they learn. There is a chart for them to fill out giving a rough estimate of how they spend most of their time and questions like, "Would you change how you shape your days based on the information from this overall activity? Explain." I have had surprisingly good results with this activity, and the students learn so much about themselves in the process.
