At the middle and high school level, setting the tone the first day of school is very important. However, taking the time to have students introduce themselves and get their creative juices flowing is also very important. The following three activities are designed to maximize student participation while still allowing the teacher to set a positive, hard-working tone for the school year.
You can choose to do just one activity or all three and spread them out throughout the first week or two of school. You can even use them when you get back from a long break or at the beginning of each quarter/trimester/semester.
Activity 1: Business Cards
Activity 2: Find Someone Who
Activity 3: Back to School Icebreaker
Wishing you a great start to the new school year/semester!
