This mock facebook handout is designed as a simple and fun way to get to know your students. The two page handout can be used at any appropriate age level as a first day activity or a first week activity. The page resembles a facebook page with a few tweaks. These tweaks allow students to describe themselves by jotting down items about themselves such as their interests/hobbies, their most favorite thing in the world, a previous teacher they’ve had, and other such information.
All parts of the fakebook handouts are numbered. The numbers coincide with a numbered instruction sheet. The instruction sheet includes specifics on what students are to do on each part of the fakebook page.
If teachers prefer creating their own instructions, the numbers on the fakebook page make it easy for them to do so. Teachers can also guide the whole class through the fakebook page by referencing the numbered instructions.
The bottom of the instruction sheet also includes an easy-to-use grading rubric.
This fakebook page is a great way to get to know your students. It is a printable that will look great in color or in black and white. It's simple to print, copy, and pass out. Best of all, most students connect to it easily, and students generally have a fun time completing and engaging in it.
Teachers can even complete this activity about themselves to introduce themselves to their students at the start of the school year.
