My Life in Six Words

The activity explains itself: students must attempt to sum up their life in 6 words and no more.

There would appear to be potential applications in the classroom, however, whether as a form of assessment or for curricular purposes:

  • students could be asked to sum up a concept in 6 words as their Exit Card.
  • students could use 6 words to explain their state of mind / emotions as an entry card and then explain it to a classmate as part of a community building activity.
  • students could take on the role of a concept in the form of a R.A.F.T. but be limited to only using 6 words.
  • As a form of formative assessment, the students could be asked about their progress during a project, or even just during class, in just 6 words.
