This editable file includes directions for 6 station activities designed for students to get to know the teacher, the course, and each other. Activities also take care of 1st day bookkeeping like collecting contact information that often takes up valuable time but forces students to sit in their desks period after period on day one. These self-directed activities allow the teacher to walk around and interact with students, while collecting and dispersing necessary info. They also establish on day one how important it is for students to follow directions without the teacher having to stand up and point it out. Directions are designed to be printed out on card stock and placed at each station. Supplemental materials mentioned in directions can be purchased separately.
