Percent Poetry - 100% Me!
This lesson is a great back-to-school activity to help teachers get to know their students quickly. Students are engaged in a language activity by brainstorming a list of their own characteristics, and turning these characteristics into unique percent poems. Students are also engaged in a math activity by creating circle graphs to display their poetry, and ensuring their percents add up to 100%. Finished products can be displayed on a bulletin board to create an eye-catching back-to-school display. Includes a rubric for assessment, if desired.
