Back to School - Find a Friend: Are you looking for a fun way to get to know your class? Find-a-Friend is a fun way to get students up and moving and interacting with each other. Although best known as a way to get to know new people, these Find-a-Friend activities are perfect for any group of students, new friends or old! They are a great way to get to know a new class, or to re-connect with old friends.
Find-a-Friend ~ Back to School contains six different activities using the “Find Someone Who” format.
- All About Me
- Perfect Pets
- Keep-’em Moving
- Back to School
- In My Backpack
- Summer Fun
DIRECTIONS: Choose one of the themes for the activity. Make enough copies of the printable page for each student to have one. Students walk around the room, talking to friends, trying to find someone whose name they can put in each box. After time is up, have students return to the whole group and share what they discovered about their classmates.
