Activity Overview

Classroom community is essential, especially when students are learning to communicate in a new language. In this activity, students will share about themselves in an All About Me spider map as they practice English! They will create illustrations and descriptions to answer the prompts about themselves: their name, favorite subject in school, family, favorite animal, favorite color and favorite book. Teachers can include more than one template and customize the prompts to fit their students needs and interests. After students are done, they can present to the class or a small group.
