Mystery Classmate is an interactive group activity for everyone to get to know each other. This activity can be done any time of the year, but it's perfect during the first week of school.
Each student fills in responses to five questions in order to create his or her profile. There's one catch, though...names are not included on the profiles. The profiles are then distributed around the class and the fun begins. Students speak with their fellow classmates in order to determine which student is their Mystery Classmate. Once their guesses are confirmed, the students introduce their Mystery Classmates to the rest of the class.
