How to use:

1 ‘Welcome Back to School’ Poster. Use it to decorate your classroom.

1 ‘My Favourite…’ worksheet for students to write or draw what their favourite hobby, movie, animal and food are.

1 ‘Things I like’ Worksheet. Students need to circle the things they like in the box. Then, they can draw other things they like in another box.

1 ‘I spy…’ worksheet.

1 ‘How are you’ worksheet for students to ask each other “How are you?”. Ask them to write down each other’s responses on the answer sheet.

2‘Fill-in-the-number’ worksheet. Students need to fill in the corresponding number to answer questions about themselves and others.

Venn Diagram worksheet. Put your students in pairs, Ask them to write down the similarities and differences between them.

Colouring sheets. First, ask your students to colour the ‘mini peep’ based on the instructions. After they complete, tell them to cut out their ‘mini peep’ along the dotted line and paste it on the ‘Who is it?’ worksheet. Then, collect all the ‘Who is it?’ worksheets with everyone’s ‘mini peep’ glued on and randomly distribute one ‘Who is it?’ worksheet to each student. Ask your class to observe and ask each other questions to figure out whose ‘mini peep’ they have!

Bingo Games. Complete all the boxes on the Bingo board to win. You may want to give prizes to the winner.

5 Predicting Worksheets. Students need to find out what everyone’s favourite ‘animal’ or ‘food’ is by asking each other a simple question “What is your favourite _______?”. They need to tally their results in order to find out the most popular and least popular item (eg. food and animal). Before they start asking, ask them to predict the results.

Fact or Lie. Print as many copies of fact or lie cards as you need. Cut out the cards and laminate them so they last longer. Distribute 1 card to each student. You can also choose to hide them around the classroom so students can go on a scavenger hunt! Don’t forget to tell them that they are only allowed to take away 1 card. Once everyone has 1 card, ask them to come up with 1 fact or lie related to the number or question. Others have to guess whether they are lying or telling the truth. Ask students to go around the class asking each other “Can you tell me 1 fact or lie?” and put the responses on the answer sheet.

10 Magnifying Glasses. Cut them out, including the circle in the middle and laminate it with the thickest laminating sheet you can find! These are great to get students in the mood of going on a scavenger hunt!

Birthday Scavenger Hunt. Print as many copies of the ‘Birthday Scavenger’ cards as you need. Each student needs 1 card that matches their birthday. So, if you have 2 students born in December, you need at least 2 ‘December’ cards. Hide these cards around the classroom. Then, ask your students to find the hidden cards. The rules are simple. Each student can only keep 1 card. If they find a card that is not their birthday month, they should still keep it. They can use this card to swap with someone else. Ask students to go around the classroom and ask for each other’s birthday (“When is your birthday?”). If it turns out that they have the person’s birthday card, they can ask to swap. The swapping continues until everyone finds their own ‘Birthday’ card. You can give prizes to the first five students who find their ‘Birthday’ cards.

Student Scavenger Hunt. Hide the cards in different places around your classroom. Print as many copies as you need then cut and laminate! Ask your students to find the missing cards. Then ask them to write down the names of the people who match the trait on the card on the answer sheet. The answer sheet has 8 different pictures which corresponds with the 8 different cards. Students must find all the cards in order to find out the instruction and complete the worksheet.

24 Question Cards (eg. What is your favourite colour). Randomly distribute 1 card (you can adjust this number) to each student. Tell your students that they need to ask the question on their card to at least 3 people (again, this number can be adjusted).

After these activities, why not have a sharing session?
Ask students to share facts about each other!
