The following three activities are designed to maximize student participation while still allowing you to set a positive, hard-working tone for the school year. *Find Someone Who is now EDITABLE!
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. 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 (now EDITABLE!)
Activity 3: Back to School Icebreaker
This is a ZIP file. It contains the original PDF with the three ice breaker activities. It also includes an Editable PowerPoint file for the Find Someone Who activity. You can add or take away columns or rows. You can change the categories as necessary.
Wishing you a great start to the new school year/semester!
