A travel themed get-to-know-you activity!
This beginning of the year activity asks students to "pack" their suitcase with all the essentials they'll need for their learning adventure. I've incorporated depth & complexity icons and the growth mindset concept into this reflective GTKY activity.
I have included 2 versions:
1.) Requires more in-depth thinking and to take a serious look at their learning journey.
2.) Gives students the chance to introduce themselves, ask questions about the upcoming year, and gives teachers insight into their learning preferences.
This activity also serves as a quick beginning of the year assessment for identifying main ideas and writing summaries.
