Here’s a quick, easy & super-fun writing prompt for February, which is also an interesting activity for your Valentine’s Day party, that I’m sure your students will enjoy.
Venn diagrams are a simple way to introduce the concept of comparison - contrast writing.
Students choosing a partner to make a "Venn Friend" with, is a cool way to do that.
It’s also an interesting way for students to get to know each other better.
Introduce the lesson with the "What's a Venn diagram?" poster.
To help them 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 the "heart", and then together, using the middle “same” section, they take turns recording the similarities that they have with their Venn Friend.
For that finishing touch, add a school photograph.
Completed projects make an awesome February bulletin board.
I’ve included 4, “Venn Friends” or “Valentine Venn Friends” poster options for your display.
To give you more writing prompt options, I’ve included two other heart-shaped Venn diagram templates, without the “Valentine Venn Friend” header.
For added fun, and to practice another standard that mixes math with literacy, I’ve also included a graphing extension.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making a Venn Friend as much as mine do. Wishing you a wonderful February stuffed with lots of valentines.
