*This template can be used with any subject* Below you will find a description of how I use it.
Transitioning students back from Winter Break can be a challenge. I choose to start of the new year by asking students to be reflective about the previous year, specifically the moments that held the most significance. Instagram's Top 9 is an end of the year highlight reel that creates a collage with the 9 posts that received the most likes/comments. This year I thought what better way to have students practice reflecting by allowing them to create their own Top 6 of the most significant moments of the previous year. Students will use pictures/symbols to illustrate the top six moments and then will use the bio lines to create a statement that summarizes the year. Examples include " The year everything changed" "The year I found my voice"
Once students complete the template they are to respond to the questions on the back for even further reflection. This is a fun activity that my students enjoy working on.
This would also be a great activity to use at the beginning of the school year as a get to know me activity, or as a creative biography project or historical event timeline for a history class. The possibilities are really endless! I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine!
