Compare and Contrast

This is a really cute activity that I found in Mailbox magazine.  Students are able to compare and contrast themselves with other students in the class.  My kids had a blast with this activity.  They actually asked me if they could do it again.  That was music to my ears.  They had fun while comprehending a skill!! This is also a really great "getting to know each other" activity for the beginning of the year.

All you do is make a Venn diagram on a white piece of paper.  Then you pair your students up.  I let my students pick their partners, but you could assign partners.  Then they compare and contrast their looks and interests.  After they are done, they make their circle look like them by adding eyes, a nose, ears, and hair. A few of my girls even got creative and added earrings.
