There are five Back to School activities included: Student Information Sheet, All About Me with Integers Practice, "Find Someone Who" Math Edition, Word Search, and Conversation Starters. Great activities for back to school in secondary math. Now available in print and Google Drive digital versions.

Welcome Back to School Student Information Sheet

Get to know your students by asking them to fill in:

Nickname, Birthday, Favorite Summer Memory or Activity, Favorite Holidays or Traditions, and more!

All About Me with Integers Practice

Students share:

Name of Their Street, Favorite School Subject, Favorite Sport, Instrument, or Activity, and more!

Using the included chart of corresponding letters and integer values, students find the “value” of each of their responses in order to practice finding the sum of integers.

“Find Someone Who” Math Edition

There are 20 review math questions asking about key words, geometric shapes, one-step equations, formulas, and more.

Each student must have 20 different students fill in a box with the answer and their name.

Answer key included.

Back to School Math Word Search

Great to use as a time filler for those who finish other activities early!

16 words to search for.

Answer key included.

Conversation Starters

Ideas for using the 30 cards:

-Select a different card each day and ask students to answer it either verbally or by writing on the front board.

-Give each student a different card and allow students time to share their answer with a partner, small group, or whole class.

Some of the cards have basic “get to know you” questions and others are silly and/or “outside the box.” (Awesome throughout the school year!)
