In order to make the Venn diagrams, I gave them paper plates. For some reason, the simple act of creating a diagram on a paper plate (as opposed to one on a worksheet) suddenly made the activity more interesting and appealing to them. It was an idea I found over on Pinterest and I couldn't wait to try it out. Using colored construction paper might work well too!
I think they turned out very well too. Hooray for the creative teachers out there who share their ideas! I am grateful for them.
