Students will insert 3 items “into” their bags and give a brief video explanation or typed explanation behind the significance of each one! This template is so cool because it looks like the items are actually IN the bag. Depending on how you set up the assignment students cans can cover their clues or video and their classmates will interact with the slides and guess who the bag belongs to by guessing through the comments before revealing who created the bag. You can also have students share their bags during a Zoom Call! Share as small groups in a breakout room, or have 2-3 students share their paper bag slides each morning as a morning meeting!

This Get to Know you goes BEYOND the basic… What’s your favorite food? What’s your favorite color? and really allows YOU and your older students to get to know one another.
