Snapshot Autobiographies from SHEG: Introductory Activity

Need a good first week activity? 
This activity from Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) has a great introductory lesson that helps students understand what history is about and also allows teachers to get to know their students in the first weeks of school.
They do this by creating brief autobiographies and then reflecting on the process to help them better understand how history is written.
My thanks to LIz Ramos for tweeting the link.

I've used this activity for two years and it is a great tool to get to know my students. I look forward to reading their autobiographies every time I use the activity.
