Students can work individually or collaborate in pairs/groups to brainstorm an idea, take a photo, and add text to make a meme that tells the class something about them (such as a personality trait, pet peeve, favorite or least favorite _____, activity or sport they enjoy, etc.). Then, they can share the meme with the class for a fun getting to know you activity that may actually elicit laughs rather than groans!
The file provided includes the link that will allow students to make a copy of the Google Drawings file, and it gives specific directions to the teacher on how to present the activity to students. It also includes additional suggestions for implementation, and troubleshooting tips. With all of this guidance, even the least tech-savvy teachers and students can use this resource painlessly.
