Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?
This beautiful, hand-illustrated drawing, writing, or discussion prompt asks kids to share souvenirs from adventures they’ve been on. That might mean drawing actual knick-knacks they’ve picked up in foreign lands, or sharing memories of things they saw.
The souvenirs could even be intangible—a lesson learned, a friend they met, a new experience. And the adventures might be internal as well. Or in the time of COVID-19, those travels and souvenirs might be imaginary. Where do they wish they had gone and what would they have taken from those places? It’s up to you and your students to define the scope of the prompt.
In any case, it’s a great way to get to know each other at the beginning of the school year, sum up adventures you’ve taken together in class, or get back in touch with each other after a break!
Each of these original worksheets from the 60 Positive Activities for Kids activities are extremely flexible and adaptable to fit your classroom! Students can respond in writing, in discussion, or by drawing. Younger learners (or lower-level ESL/EFL students) might start with a drawing, then label it. After that, they can tell their partner about their answer, before doing a short writing of a sentence or two. Older or more advanced students might start with drawings and notes, and move straight to a paragraph, which they can then read or present to the class!
They’re easy to fit into a writing class, English class, creative play time, or even an after-school program, preschool, nursery school, kindergarten, or homeschooling situation.
