My students love quotations. I think, like many of us, they admire the ability of people to perfectly formulate their ideas into compact groups of words that make sense and are often thought-provoking. Mensa for Kids includes in its lesson plans one that is called, “Quotation Station.” It includes 65 quotes as well as questions to accompany them, and rubrics to determine student understanding. There are also 20 ideas for using quotes in the classroom. There is a section near the bottom that recommends other sites to find quotes, which includes a link to free quote coloring pages.
Here are some other posts that I have done about quotations that you might find useful:
