This activity will allow your students to introduce themselves to you and their classmates, whether they are in school or at home.

Students will create a slide that they will use to introduce themselves to the class. Then, after all slides been submitted, you will share them with everyone, so the class can do a scavenger hunt to get to know their classmates. Students will have the option of using a photo of themselves or an object or quote that represents them. They can also record their introduction if they prefer.

This resource comes with several templates for students to choose from, as well as exemplars for inspiration. There are also directions to help them use the templates to create their unique slide.

Bonus Material: I have included slides that you can use to have you class play Two Truths & a Lie and Would You Rather.
