This is an excellent community building activity!! You could use this at the beginning of school or anytime of the year your class needs an extra boost! You will need to use the tradebook the "Rainbow Fish" for this activity. After reading, the chilren should be given an easy fish template. After then, you will need to have pieces of tissue paper or construction paper for children to use to decorate. Each color will stand for a personality trait. Students will decorate thier fish based on thier personalities and the introduce themselves to the class. I hope this works as well for you as it did for me. Have fun!
