Students have fun learning while collaborating, competing, drawing, and reading.

It is extremely important to set the tone of class on the first day. If you want to start the year off with a "down-to-business" approach, this makes for a great first day. However, if you want to do a get-to-know-you activity on the first day, that is fine too - just save this for another day.

This lesson works well any time and it is engaging, informative, and fun!
