PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here's a super-fun "little something" that you can do during the week of Saint Patrick's Day.

Venn diagrams are a quick, easy & interesting way to introduce the concept of comparison - contrast writing.

Students choosing a partner to make a "Venn Friend” with, is a simple and fun way to do that.

It’s also an interesting way for students to get to know each other too.

Introduce the lesson with the "What's a Venn diagram?" poster.

To help students do a thorough job completing their Venn diagram and jump start the writing process, I've included a list of 40 questions that they can choose from to discuss with their partner.

Each student does their own "different" portion of their shamrock.

Afterwards, the two-some glues their shamrock to the “pot of gold”, and takes turns filling in the “same” section oval, which is then glued to the top of the pot.

For that finishing touch, students color their leprechaun, add a school photograph on the leprechaun’s face, then glue it to their side of the Venn diagram.

I have my students share several parts of their "Venn Friend" with the class.

For added fun, and to practice another standard that mixes math with literacy, I’ve also included a graphing extension.

Completed projects make an awesome March bulletin board.

I’ve included 3 “Lucky To Have A Venn Friend” posters to use as the center of your display.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning about their classmates, while practicing the concept of comparing & contrasting.
