All life is a journey. This activity lets students create a pictorial life map from their birth to the present day. The project will be completed totally by using images with brief captions.
Although I have used this assignment in conjunction with teaching The Odyssey Literature - The Odyssey Unit Plan
, it can accompany any story that involves a journey, such as Into the Wild Unit Plan
I used this with Middle School and High School students, but upper elementary students would enjoy this activity, too. This is an engaging project for the first week of school or anytime during the year.
