Tip: Connect It! Cards
Make 10 each of 3 index cards with sentence starters: "This reminds me of myself because.." "This reminds me of a story because.." and "This reminds me of something that happened because.." Pass a card to each student. Stop a story, poem or a movie every few minutes and have a volunteer makes a connection.
Variations & Extensions:
Use fewer cards in a small group setting; have each student, a scribe, or a videographer record their connection and create a book or a short film with the connections; have students trade cards; ask students to compare and contrast the connections with a Venn diagram.
