Product Description
Hello Teachers!

I created this assignment, homework, and/or project for my third grade class this year. It all revolves around what our names mean. Students will interview their parent/guardians and learn answers to the following questions:
- Why did our parents give us our name?
- What does my name actually mean and where does it come from?

Once students have that information, students will write two detailed paragraphs on the back of the paper:
- 1st Paragraph: Explaining what the name means, it's origin, and why parents chose that name.
- 2nd Paragraph: Opinion paragraph explaining if the meaning of our name matches our personality. Why or why not?

Such a fun assignment. Students really appreciated that it was homework for them and their families. Have fun!
