Heart maps. These are so much fun to create! Heart maps show at a glance the uniqueness of each individual as well as similarities we enjoy. These are good for students to have on hand for writing assignments as it gives them ideas on things they can write about that are more personal to them.
Draw a heart and divide it into sections.
Ineach section draw or write something you love. Make it colorful! Use markers, crayons, colored pencils or even paint.
I found in doing these heart maps with my children that it can be a very good project to see what they are interested in and loving at this moment in time.
This would be a great project to do for other topics:
- favorite things about a certain season – use a different shape like a sun for summer or a leaf for autumn
- a gratitude list
- books you’ve read
- memorable events in your life
