As a class, we shared some similarities. Some people brought in cell phones, ipods, a variety of books, and many other different things that represented who they are. This activity showed our many interests and likes. It also showed how we are all connected in some way with the artifacts we brought in. With an activity like this one, you can have students see similarities and differences between one another. We had a chance to learn from one another, see what they found valuable and meaningful to them and it made us learn more about ourselves. Like we did with this activity, a writing prompt about a classmates' artifact that stood out to them the most, what you want to know about it, and why it has meaning to them is a good why for students to think about others artifacts and integrates Language Arts into this activity.
