FREE Quotes in the Classroom – 8 Activities for Using Famous Quotes! FREE
Quote of the Day Use this worksheet with a quote displayed on the board. This would be great to use daily as morning work, or use weekly or randomly whenever you have a few minutes. Students can keep all their worksheets in a folder or binder so they will have the whole collection at the end of the year.
This would be good for comparing two quotes that say the same thing in different ways, or two quotes that are about the same thing but say the opposite. You could put two quotes on the board or allow students to choose their own.
Quote Scavenger Hunt
This is a fun activity that will have your students searching the internet or whatever hardcopy sources you supply for quotes. It might also make a good homework assignment.
This activity allows students to gather nine different quotes on the same topic.
Who Said That
Students collect six quotes by the same author for this activity. A fun variation would be to have each student leave the center box blank. Then classmates can read the quotes and guess who the author is.
Top Five Quotes
This would be good to do near the end of the year after students have collected many quotes. Students must choose five favorites to rank in order.
Students design an inspirational poster using a favorite quote and an illustration in this activity.
Favorite Quote Bookmark
Print this on cardstock and allow students to create their own bookmarks using favorite quotes.
