CLASSROOM – Look Alike
Teachers and students have experienced days when people look alike in the classroom. National Look Alike Day reminds us of these occasions. It’s not just people dressing alike. Some people look, talk, and walk alike. We mix up their names and after a time, we even give up and just call them the first name that comes to mind. We all know someone who has experienced this. Maybe you are that person who looked like someone else.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Download and print this week’s project and give your students the opportunity to explore the national days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!
Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:
1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
