  1. “All About Me” Collage: Have each student create a collage that represents themselves using pictures, words, and drawings. They can include their favorite hobbies, interests, family, and goals for the school year. After completing their collages, students can share and present them to the class, allowing everyone to get to know each other better.

  2. “Find Someone Who” Scavenger Hunt: Create a list of statements or questions related to school and have students find classmates who can answer “yes” to each statement. For example, “Find someone who has a pet,” or “Find someone who has been to a different country.” This activity encourages students to interact with their peers, learn more about each other, and build connections.

  3. “Guess the Object” Game: Bring in various school-related objects and place them in a bag or box. One at a time, have students take turns reaching into the bag without looking and trying to guess what object they are touching. They can describe the object’s shape, texture, or any other clues they can gather. This activity promotes critical thinking, observation skills, and teamwork as students work together to guess the objects.

1. "All About Me" Time Capsule: Instead of creating a simple collage, have each student create a time capsule that represents themselves. They can include items such as a letter to their future self, a drawing of their dream career, a list of their favorite books or movies, and a small object that holds personal significance. Seal the time capsules and store them in the classroom. At the end of the school year, students can open their time capsules and reflect on how they have grown and changed.

2. "Back to School Olympics": Organize a series of fun and active challenges for the students to compete in. Set up stations with different activities such as a sack race, hula hoop contest, relay race, and a water balloon toss. Divide the class into teams and have them rotate through the stations, earning points for their team. This activity promotes teamwork, sportsmanship, and physical fitness while creating a lively and engaging atmosphere.

3. "STEM Challenge: Build a Pencil Tower": Provide each student with a set number of pencils and rubber bands. Challenge them to build the tallest tower possible using only these materials. Encourage them to think creatively and problem-solve as they construct their towers. Afterward, have students measure and compare the heights of their towers. This activity incorporates STEM concepts, such as engineering and measurement, while fostering critical thinking and collaboration skills.
