Tell students they are going to use anagrams to transform their names and even their identities! Ask them if they know what an anagram is (a word or phrase made by transposing the letters of another word or phrase). Give them these examples of successful anagrams. Discuss how these anagrams enhance the meaning of the original word or phrase.

Let students practice making anagrams by using a simple word such as "lemon" (melon, no elm) and a more challenging phrase such as "the story" (Shy otter, They sort). Discuss how these anagrams change the meaning of the original word or phrase.

Explain to students that they will be using their first and last names to create anagrams. Tell them not to use uppercase letters. Ask them to come up with as many anagrams of their names as possible in a selected time period. Younger students mights need assistance with this.
