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.

Consider extending this instructional activity by having each learner write a haiku about themselves.
