    I do this but it is called Autobiography in a Bag. I attach a note to the bag that istructs them to bring 5 items that fit in the bag and they will use these items to tell about themselves to the class the next day. The students start school on a Thursday. I show/tell them about myself with my bag on the first day. Then I give them their first homework assignment-to bring in theirs the next day. An example of what I put in the bag is 1. one of my cat's collars, 2. a picture of my husband, 3. a shell from the beach, 4. some kind of chocolate, 5. my favorite CD. I try to illustrate not to bring all pictures since that is so easy to do....even for me. Students end up bringing items like their favorite book, movie, video game, pictures and other items in which to tell about themselves. We always find out so much about them. Its alot of fun.
