This download includes a 20-slide PowerPoint that can be used in the first week of school as a get-to-know-you activity that has students up and moving around the room. The content is related to American history topics.
Students consider optional responses to a fun question related to the history content they will be learning about during the school year, and then they walk to the corner of the room to see who else chose the same answer. This lasts anywhere from 15-45 minutes, depending on how much discussion you want to lead. Enjoy!
