Your students will love these 2 activities. The first activity is a get to know your classmates bingo. Cut the worksheet in half and give each student a Bingo sheet, set the timer for 4 minutes and have the students go around getting the signatures of students who meet the criteria in the square. Ex: went to the beach this summer. The only rule is once a student signs his/her name, they can't sign in any other box. Time can be adjusted based on the age of the students. I do this activity with 6th grade middle school students and 4 minutes works well. The second activity is a Time Capsule. Again, cut sheets in half and distribute to the students. They will then answer the 10 questions on the sheet. Ex: favorite tv. show... then the sheets are collected and placed in a box. Wrap the box with paper and mark it Time Cpasule, don't open until... ( I put the last day of the school year on it) then, put the box on a shelf. Then on the last day of school, you give the students another time capsule sheet, have them fill it out, finally open the sealed capsule and let the students compare how they have grown and changed over the course of the year.
