With this fun activity for the first week, you'll...

  • Help students build relationships and community
  • Introduce one-pagers as a way to represent key ideas in your class
  • Teach kids how to use hexagonal thinking in a meaningful way
  • Get to know your students betters, and learn their names!

In this guided one-pager activity, kids create one-pagers about who they are. When they're done, you can snap a quick photo of them holding their one-pagers to help you learn their names!

Then use the included video to quickly and easily introduce them to hexagonal thinking, a discussion method you can return to over and over throughout the year.

Finally, guide them in creating a web of interconnected hexagonal one-pagers on your wall, showing how all the kids in the class are connected through different aspects of their identity.

This is a solid start-of-year activity, because it builds relationships while also introducing create methods you'll want to rely on throughout the year.

From the Reviews:

"My seniors loved this activity. I used it on the first day back to school. They were surprised to learn that there were so many things they each had in common! Extremely creative and interactive!"

"This is a great back-to-school activity. I love the twist on one-pagers by making them into a hexagonal activity. This resource will provide a meaningful way for students to see how they are all connected."

"I love this activity as a getting-to-know-you at the beginning of the year. My students loved how we connected the sides in which they shared similar interests."
