This activity is something that I do with my freshmen students in order to get to know them better and let them ease into the new school year. It's called a Self-Expression Collage.
This one-page document outlines the activity, the procedures, and the specific requirements of each day, which includes a scavenger hunt for pictures, creating of collage, and a brief class presentation at the completion of the activity.
This activity is a fun, easy opportunity for you to get to know your new students as they cooperatively work together. It also provides the students with a fun, artistic way to express themselves to their peers as well as their teacher.
