Creating hashtags on social media posts is nothing new to today's students, so why not bring it into the classroom? Students will love creating their own #Selfie Snapshot as a great ice-breaker BACK TO SCHOOL activity.
Get to know how your students will define themselves, while incorporating English Language Arts concept of CENTRAL IDEA (CCSS RI6.2, RI7.2, RI8.2, RI9.2)
I use this at the beginning of the year as a fun activity to get to know my students, and have them get to know more about each other. When students are done, I post them on bulletins around the classroom for a quick, easy decoration that showcases student work (parents love it at back-to-school night).
This activity includes a #Selfie Snapshot handout for students to complete their work on, instructions, and a Student Sample.
