This is a great, quick activity that can be used at the start of any class or cycle with new students. It get students out of their chairs and encourages them to mix and mingle with their new classmates. Items can be tailored to meet the needs of your population. This one would be best used at the start of a new school year, following summer vacation. Though it is not necessary, it can be very rewarding to go over the activity with the students aloud during a whole group share out at the end of class.
