Bingo to Meet You is a great resource for a first day of school "ice-breaker" activity. Instead of sharing information about yourself in front of the entire class (terrifying!), students can get up and moving around the room to find classmates who fit the bingo box criteria and get their signatures.
Ideas for use:
-collect signatures for all boxes
-get 5 in a row for BINGO
-see who can get the most signatures from different people
-share who they had a similarity with
-set a timer and see who gets the most signatures
