Preparation: Sheets of butcher paper and pens/markers.
Divide students into groups of three. Give each group a large sheet of butcher paper and a different color marker for each person. Have them draw a Venn diagram with a circle for each student.
The students in each group are to discuss what their similarities and differences are. After the discussion, they fill in the diagram showing their similarities and differences. When they agree they write their preferences in the center/overlapping areas of the diagram. When their answers are different they write in the outside area of the circles.
If a group has a hard time getting started, give them some guidance by asking questions such as, “What is your favorite music?”, “When is your birthday?”, “What sports do you like? or “Where were you born?”
