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.
are a simple way to introduce the concept of comparison - contrast
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
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.
