This is a great "getting to know you" activity to try at the beginning of the year. Students work on creating a superhero/villain biography of themselves.
The second part is a series of questions where the students will have to wander around the room and find other people that match up with them. (e.g. Find a character in the room that you feel is your opposite. Explain why with at least three reasons)
On the surface, this is an icebreaker activity, however, it is also a great way to gauge whether or not your students have basic fundamental skills as well as social skills in order to work in partners or groups later on in the year. You can quickly learn a lot about your students and how to establish instruction throughout the year by doing this activity.
