PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Building community within a classroom setting is essential to academic success. If students know each other’s names, feel that they can relate to one another, can laugh together, and can trust each other, they are more likely to work together towards a common goal.
This is a collection of 8 fun and sometimes serious activities that you can use throughout the year to bond as a class. For each activity I have included instructions, approximate timing, when/where the activity should take place, and a “takeaway” debrief opportunity for after the activity.

• Speed Dating- Getting to know classmates
• Stand Up Sit Down- Finding similarities and differences
