This is the perfect first day of school game. Students love playing this game where they get to share fun facts about themselves while learning about their classmates. What are students going to do while you unpack school supplies the first day? You need something they can do alone that they will find fun and beneficial. Teachers find out valuable information and fun facts as they watch and listen to groups of students play and learn. The questions are appropriate for students in all grades and subject areas. Questions such as are you a bus rider or car rider? Do you wear glasses? These questions are not grade or subject specific. Give students something to do while you unpack school supplies and organize those first days of school. This is the perfect solution.This game can be played throughout the year to remind you of details you may have forgotten about your students. Do you remember who they really are? There are blank cards for teachers to create their own questions. Perfect for the beginning, middle, and end of the year.
Students answer questions on game cards and move their game pieces the number of places indicated based on whether the descriptors apply to them. The first person to reach the end wins. Maybe the card will send them back a space or two. Questions such as: Are you a twin? might earn 3 spaces. Are you a car rider? could earn 2 spaces. Students are sure to want to play over and over for a second chance. This game is a winner and students learn more and more about their new friends. In the middle and end of the year they realize they didn't know each other as well as they thought they did. Build team friendship and camaraderie with this great game.
