I have been searching for the perfect first day of school activity for high schoolers (this also would work for middle school) and I couldn't find one so. I decided to make a student profile where the student can inform their teacher about small things in their life (what they like/dislike, favorite famous person, their goals for the year, who they live with, etc.). The interview portion will allow students to interact with one another and learn more about their classmates. The goal is by the end of the activity, one student will introduce the other to the class.
