"All About Me" Paperless Activities for Google Drive
Get to know your students with this All About Me digital interactive resource. Students will complete 15 engaging activities about themselves and their families.
This Google Slides resource can be used in any classroom that has access to Google Drive, Google Classroom, or Microsoft OneDrive. Directions are included for sharing the file with students. It's a fun paperless digital activity for the start of a new year!
After activities such as "My Favorites", "Would You Rather", "Take Sides", or "Emoji Me" are completed, students compare answers with partners, so they can see all that they have in common. This helps build a strong sense of community. Doing these same activities whole group during Morning Meeting would be a great extension.
Students will share their work with you, which you can then project for the whole class for such activities as "Two Truths and a Fib", "Summer Snapshot", and "Dream Destination". These activities all offer students the opportunity to speak in front of the class in a low-key, non-threatening way.
While designed as a paperless activity, individual pages can be printed out for a bulletin board display.
