No prep! Six back-to-school activities! Some are great for distance learning! All can be used in the classroom. Use these six exercises to help students get to know each other at the beginning of the school year. And it will help you learn their names quicker!

These fun activities are a great way to start the school year well, but they can be used all year, especially the Classmate Comparison!

Getting to Know You

Help students tell you more about themselves through the use of a survey sheet. Then ask them to use it to introduce themselves to their classmates!

10 Raise-Your-Hand Introductions

For 10 minutes each day, ask students these questions about themselves (and have optional discussions) so you can get to know them and they can get to know each other better.

Scavenger Hunt

Have students go on a scavenger hunt to discover more about each other.

Talk About Class Unity

Create a booklet with a fun, fill-in-the-blank fable from Aesop about how getting along can make your class stronger.

Your Class Tapestry

Have students and their parents create an informative square about the student. Then hang up all the squares together to create a class tapestry on the wall of your classroom.

Venn Diagram

Pair up students and have them fill in this Venn diagram to capture what is similar and different between themselves and one other classmate. Then they can write a comparison paragraph on what they find! This activity can be done all year to sharpen a student's comparison skills and to help him or her get to know classmates better!
