Use these 8 cards containing a total of 40 unique, personal (but not too personal!) questions as a stimulus for new, unaquainted clasmates to get to know each other.
This structured initial meeting can help to provide a less intimidating introduction. Ideal for transition between grades where students do not know each other well or in situations where students would just benefit from learning more about each other.
Pair students and rotate cards and classmates over the course of a day or week, enabling each classmate to interview and be interviewed by each other!
Also good as a practical activity for speaking and listening and other social skills development.
