FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - "Live & Learn" Life Lessons Class Activity Anytime or End of the Year

by Tracee Orman
1st - 12th Grade

Excellent inspirational, fun, and rewarding activity!
Several years ago I was inspired by a little book called "Live and Learn and Pass It On" by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. His idea was to have others jot down the lessons they have learned in life. He compiled all these lessons into a book, identifying each only with the person's age. 
I thought it would be neat to see what my students could come up with at the end of the year. It's been such a positive experience that I wanted to share it with other teachers. Each year I read examples from the past to my students (who always want to know "Who wrote that one!?") before they write their own. Year after year I get funny ones, sad ones, and some shocking ones, too. It's a great way to wrap up your semester, year, at any age or grade level!
