Looking for a FUN Get to Know You Activity that’s Perfect / Appropriate for Upper Grades or your older students? (Upper Elementary, Middle School, High School or Secondary) This Digital All About Me is the Perfect Virtual Back to School Activity that can be used in the Distance Learning Classroom, the traditional classroom, or even a hybrid! Students will LOVE creating their own “My Life in Pictures.” In this, Digital Activity students will also enjoy interacting and CONNECTING with their other classmates! This product mimics the idea of a social media profile.
This digital ice breaker activity is great for the first day of school or the first week of school. It was created for Upper Elementary, Middle School, Junior High, or Secondary Students. It can be completed in one class period and incorporates a get-to-know-you activity that allows students to share about themselves. When teaching this lesson you can model each step thus allowing your students to get to know you, and form connections with you in the process! I’ve created a template that allows students to simply use a place holder for the image meaning they won’t need to worry about croppings or sizing their pictures to fit the slide! SO EASY AND FUN! This product was created in Google Slides and can easily be edited or assigned in Google Classroom or Canvas. *** If using Canvas instead of using this as a collaborative slide back to school activity it is my understanding you will instead make a single copy for each student to complete.
Students will insert 8 pictures plus a profile image and type a brief explanation or think of a relevant hashtag! These templates are so cool because not only are they SO SIMPLE to edit, but they are also BEAUTIFUL and age-appropriate. I’ve included over 10 styles and themes to pick from. Each one fit to a different type of personality. These technically all could be printed, however, I have also included an ink-friendly PRINTABLE version.
You can assign this as a collaborative slide and have students interact and comment with each others. Have students present their pages with a brief explanation in the classroom or over a Zoom Call or Google Meet. Students can even share as a small group in a breakout room during a zoom call, or have 2-3 students share slides each morning as a morning meeting! No matter what type of classroom setting you are teaching in, this activity integrates seamlessly.
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.
