I tried this unit with my students this year and they loved it. My students are deaf and communicate using sign language, so I included a section where they addressed the background of their sign names, too. For publishing, we used a computer program called Comic Life instead of writing paragraphs. My students loved finding out how popular their names are and adding personal stories -- like when they were named after someone special. Thanks for sharing this activity!
