Building "Community" with a Venn Diagram in a Multi-Grade Classroom

At school, we use Venn Diagrams to think about ideas and compare and contrast those ideas.  Here is an example of a Venn Diagram (if you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can read it easier) used to compare 3 sisters:
I wanted to share it with you because I think it is a perfect example of an activity you could do with 2 or 3 students in your class to help build "Community" in a Multi-grade Classroom.

Picture a 4th Grader and a 5th Grader working together to build a Venn Diagram that compares and contrasts their lives. Perhaps they will find out that they both love reading a certain author... or writing in a personal journal... or playing sports... or have a big brother that teases them both.

If you and I were creating that Venn Diagram, some of the descriptors that would be in my circle are:
  • loves sharing ideas and hearing ideas from others
  • creative sewer who enjoys sewing for her granddaughters and has a sewing blog too
  • married for over 40 years
  • still taking classes and reading books to learn new ideas
  • thinks out-of-the-box 
What would be in your circle? Share one thing about yourself in the comment section of this post.  I'd enjoy reading about you too!
