ONE PEACE ATA TIME-Activity Six-Word Memoir


Use a single picture and only six words to express yourself in a SIX-WORD MEMOIR!

Once asked to write a full story in six words, legend has it that novelist Ernest Hemingway responded: “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”  Six word memoirs are sometimes sad, often funny — and always concise.

  1. View samples of 6-word memoirs to get inspiration. Additional examples of 6-word phrases can be found at
  2. After being inspired by the samples, take some time to think of what you have learned about with The Nobelity Project.  Pick an Issue and think about 6 words that you can share to express what you have learned.
  3. After deciding on the 6 words that convey the issue that most resonates with you, take some time to search for a picture/photo that might add to the feeling you are trying to convey. You can use PicNikat to add your words to the picture/photo.
  4. Share your vision—Upload your completed presentation to the Nobelity WebQuest.
