    Puzzle BUNDLE

    The 5 activities include:

    1. Student Interview
    The student interview is the perfect way for students to get to know each other! Students pair up and ask each other questions.

    The questions include:

    When is your birthday?

    Do you have any siblings or pets?

    What is your favorite color?

    What is your favorite book?

    What is your favorite subject?

    What is your favorite hobby?

    What is your favorite movie, TV show, or game?

    What is your favorite outdoor activity?

    Where is your favorite place to visit?

    What is one thing you want people to know about you?

    2. Two Truths & A Lie
    Students write down three statements about themselves. Two statements are true and one is a lie. Their classmates have to guess which of the statements is a lie. This activity can be done as a whole class or in small groups. Each student gets one of the rectangles to fill out. There are three rectangles on a page.

    3. Classmate Scavenger Hunt (Digital & Printable)
    We all love a good Scavenger Hunt to use with our class those first couple weeks of school but it's not always easy to find one that has ALL categories you like...UNTIL NOW! This scavenger hunt is EDITABLE so you can make your own categories! If you don't want to be bothered making your own categories, this package includes one that is already completed for you!

    Students can do this scavenger hunt on PAPER or DIGITALLY! A ready-to-use printable PDF is available right when you download it, otherwise, 4 versions are available through GOOGLE SLIDES™!

    Page 4: Digital
    The categories are locked on this version. Students can simply type in the names of their classmates.

    This is a scavenger hunt you can use year after year!

    MyPhone Bulletin Board
    This is a fun "Get to Know You" activity to start your school year! This phone template allows students to express themselves AND learn about their classmates!

    Front Template:

    Students can put their name, birthday and a picture of themselves.

    Back/Apps Template:

    Students can draw or write their hobbies, interests, etc. as apps.

    This activity allows for a lot of creativity and is great for both elementary and middle school students! When students are done, they can share their MyPhone with their classmates and you can hang them up on one of your bulletin boards.

    Please Note: The MyPhone on the horizontal template is slightly smaller than the vertical versions in order to get both the front of the phone and the apps to fit on one page.

    Dicebreaker (Digital & Printable)

    This is a classic Icebreaker activity to do the first month of school. Students roll a die and share something about themselves based on what number it lands on. This package includes print versions as well as EDITABLE horizontal versions in Google Slides.

    Want to go paperless? You can project the horizontal versions on your Smart Board for your class to see!
