This is a great set of "How do you feel when ..." questions to use in your classroom to promote openness and for students to get to know one another better. These can be used for younger students as conversation starters, or they could be writing prompts for older students.
There is a set of 19 questions that can be used for partner share or individual use. I put each end of the question on a flash card that can be cut out and put in a bucket to pull. That is an easy way to make sure that no pair gets the same question!
Try this activity and not only will the students get to know one another better, but you will gain some insight to how they think and feel as well! :)
