Need a new activity to get to know and build rapport with your students? This is a quick activity for older students that might get bored with traditional get-to-know-you activities.
The purpose of this activity is to get to know someone such as a peer, teacher, or therapist by engaging in a guided conversation.
The objective of the activity is to make a “path” of circles to get from one end of the page to the other (either top to bottom, or bottom to top). If you want to have a “winner” it would be the first person to complete the path.
How To Play:
Make a Path across the page by starting on a circle at one end (top or bottom) and marking circles in a path all the way to the opposite side. Moves may go to the next circle to the side, top or bottom, or diagonally (the lines denote where you may move to from any given circle). You may use bingo chips, bingo daubers, stickers, stamps, or markers to create a path.
There are multiple variations on how to use this activity:
★ For a class or group, each person may have their own page and make a path by asking questions to other students and marking the circles when someone answers “yes” to a question.
★ For a small group of 2 people, each person can start their path on opposite ends of each other. Take turns making a path by telling things about themselves, or asking about the other person to mark the circles.
★With a small group, all members can work cooperatively to make one path by discussing the topics in the circles and marking one path.
This would also work great for teletherapy!
