Silver Level: Education: Activity 2: It’s All About You!
This activity requires you to create a magazine cover that’s all about you! The title of your magazine should be one word that describes you. There is a list of requirements that you should follow, but aside from those few rules you have the freedom to be as creative as possible with your magazine cover.
You should keep in mind that the goal of this magazine cover is to showcase everything you would want a stranger to know about you. You can make up names of articles that talk about your accomplishments, make the background a collage of pictures, or use one word statements to describe yourself!
This activity will allow you to reflect on the way you present yourself to others, and showcase your creative skills. Have fun with this activity!
This week’s article is something that might just inspire you to find your next favorite thing! Participate in a local service learning or literacy project. Contact elementary schools or libraries in your area to find out what opportunities you have to not only complete Business Activity 8, but get community service hours, and make a difference in someone else’s life.
