"You're a star, because..."

I used this activity with my 7th graders.
First I asked them to draw a six pointed star on a cardboard or paper, any colour they liked. Then they brought their stars to class. The aim was to think of someone they would like to give their star to and write on it (in the middle) the sentence "You're a star because ..." and finally write an adjective on each of the six parts of the star. It was a nice way to practise different adjectives. When they finished their work, they exchanged their stars. It was quite a surprise what they thought about other classmates.

I'm showing here only three of the many stars.

This was an end of the school year activity.
