So many times my students are asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And more than any other class, these students just don’t know. I find that the question really stresses them out. So, I decided to take a different approach. I created an activity that focused in on WHO the students want to be, not only what.
Engage your students with this fun print-and-go craft and bulletin board display that asks the students to brainstorm WHO they want to be in the upcoming year. Encourage a growth-mindset as they think about positive character traits they hope to exhibit in 2018.
1. Give each student a body template (I’ve included multiple templates for you to choose from)
2. Show the students the list of positive character traits (or brainstorm a list as a class)
3. Have each student fill out their “body” with different positive character traits that they want to exhibit in the coming year
4. Instruct each student to draw/color the face and cut out the entire body to turn in.
5. Display the students on a bulletin board with the title “WHO do you want to be in 2018?”
*Multiple body templates to choose from (2 to a page for paper-saving printing)
*Extras: Bulletin Board/Display Title and a Suggested list of positive character traits
