Mapping Your Identity: A Back-To-School Ice Breaker

Identify the unique personal attributes of your class members. Begin by viewing the Visual Thesaurus and discussing displayed attributes associated with famous American leaders. Using these identity maps as models, pupils generate nouns and adjectives that describe themselves. They use these words to create a personal identity map to share with their classmates. Consider extending this lesson plan by having each learner write a haiku about themselves.
