Product Description
"What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
Formidable words written by William Shakespeare. Now what if I told you we could use this question to engage our students and build classroom community?

YESSSS!!!! It's true! We CAN do it!

In this lesson, we don't mention Shakespeare (unless you want to, of course :) ) BUT I've used his words as inspiration to help my students learn their peers' names and have fun doing it!

The lesson begins by having them reflect on why they think, or don't think, names are important. We'll bring it back to the 1700's where symbols were used as "names" of places and travel right back into the modern era! We play a name game and then see how many names we've all remembered.

The best part?! THERE IS ZERO PREP TIME NEEDED!!!!
Yes, you read that right! No handouts, no copies, no grading. The only thing you may need to provide your students with is a pen/pencil and some paper.

Please feel free to alter this for your classroom or grade level as needed.

I hope you and your students have as much fun with this as my and my students did!
