Product Description

Your students will each be interviewing a classmate using a set of provided questions, and writing a short informational piece about their partner using their interview answers. This activity is a perfect class building activity for the first weeks back to school, and can serve as a baseline informational writing assessment.

These interviews are a great piece to hang on the wall for Back To School Night. Parents love to see the adorable photos, and usually get a kick out of a few of the interview answers.

You can also create a class book to keep in your class library all year long. Students love reading about their classmates throughout the year. It’s always fun looking back at the interview answers at the end of the school year after students have grown and changed. A class book is also a wonderful resource for newcomers as they get to know their new classmates.
