This assignment is a get-to-know-you activity in which students find a meaningful quote and a meaningful picture then place them on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.
On the due date, each student shares the significance of their picture and quote – why are they meaningful? Afterwards, they all go on the walls of the classroom.
They love looking at the walls to see what others have done, and it’s a good ice breaker for the start of the year.
Some students produce a single picture with a quote, and others get more elaborate and create collages with multiple quotes.
