An activity about stories associated with students' names.
Most people have a story associated with their name.
- In pairs students discuss:
How you got your name.
Is there any special meaning attached to your name?
Discuss the family background to your name.
What about names of other people in your family - are there any stories connected with these?
If you could change your name, what name would you choose and why?
I've found this to be quite a successful warmer and in some cases it can take up the whole lesson as students move around asking questions relating to names.
