Are you looking for a resource that will engage your students and help them relax and have some fun? The purpose of this social emotional activity is to build classroom community and get to know your students better.

These activities would be great for back to school, but they can be used throughout the school year. Students are asked to rank (from 1 to 5) activities for topics. Included in this resource are five themes (school, food, universe, contest, and sports). Each theme contains four separate activities for students to rank as they work online. An example activity: “If a snowman went to your school, rank what its favorite type of lunch would be.” Students would then have to rank the choices (carrot cake, ice cubes, cold soup, frozen dinner, and ice cream sandwich).

Included in Resource:

  • Rank ‘Em Tips & Links (2-pages; PDF)
  • Rank ‘Em School Theme (1-page; Google Slides™)
  • Rank ‘Em Food Theme (1-page; Google Slides™)
  • Rank ‘Em Universe Theme (1-page; Google Slides™)
  • Rank ‘Em Contest Theme (1-page; Google Slides™)
  • Rank ‘Em Sports Theme (1-page; Google Slides™)

Helpful Ideas:

This resource is meant to engage our students in a unique way. It’s also meant to help you and your students to get to know each other. This can be used with students while they are at or away from school. There are many ways to use this resource:

  • Individual Work- Individual students can rank each activity and then send to you or you can have a class (or virtual) discussion.
  • Group/Partner Work- If your students are at school, you could break your class into groups of 3-4 students (or partners) and have them work on this activity. This would help create cooperation because groups will need to come to a consensus on the rankings.
  • Classroom Discussions- If you are at school, class discussions are obviously easier. If students are away from school (virtual), class discussions can be trickier. If you meet with your students online, students could hold up fingers to indicate how they ranked. They could also write down their ranking on a piece of paper and hold it up or share in a chat/comments section.
