Teachers: This is a fun activity to do at the beginning of the year for students to get to know each other. Pair students up, or let them choose a partner to complete this activity. (If you have an odd number of students, then you can partner with someone). Give each pair a copy of the Venn diagram (or use one that you already have). Let students work for about 10 to 15 minutes about each other’s families, hobbies, favorite things, etc. Students will fill in the diagram with ways they are alike and how they are different. Once complete, each group will share their diagram with the rest of the class.
