The Christian Classroom here at Teacher's Pay Teachers offers this sweet getting to know you activity. I call it my Patchwork Peers Quilt activity. Included are instructions, a colorful bulletin board explanation sheet (hang it near your quilts), 2 blank quilt grids of 32 and 16 patches for students to decorate, a note taking sheet for reproduction during the getting to know you activity and a colorful sample for you to show your students in order to give them an idea of what a complete product will look like (well sort of look like =) )
Students conduct mini interviews by asking their peers various questions from their own curiosity and take notes about what peers reveal. Later they take one fact from each student and create a square or rectangle based on each student. Each space should represent the student in some way. Its a nice art project as well as interactive lesson. This activity will take several periods to complete.
