    Have students use a poster board (let them decide the orientation) to create a "road" of their lives, with all the landmarks to highlight important events. Using pictures and art can make these really beautiful and insightful.

    I have seen "roads" that were zig zag, spiral, straight, etc. Mountains and valleys were drawn to show the highs and lows of life (even a cemetery when a loved one passed away).

    You might want to do a whole class poster first based on a character's life your students have been studying before they try their own. Six graders love being creative, which helps them to be more thoughtful!
