A great 1st day of school activity! Each student is given a bingo sheet (attached file). Each square has an activity or a characteristic and the student must then find someone in the class that matches the activity or characteristic. When a student finds a person that matches the square they have them write their name in the square. First person to have a "blackout" wins. If you have a large class you can limit the number of times each student can sign a sheet.
After students complete the Bingo Sheet, go over each square one-by-one. Have all the students that match each square raise their hand. This is a fun way for both the teacher and the students to get to know each other.
