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 “In My Corner Slide” A fun Digital spin on the classic Four Corner Back to School Game. In this, Digital Activity students will also enjoy interacting and CONNECTING with their other classmates using the questions that THEY thought of!
This digital ice breaker activity is great for the first day of school or the first week of school. Not only is this spin-off of 4 Corners a fun way for students to get to know each other, but once students complete the slides these can be a fun way to take attendance quickly each morning, or as a way to start your morning meetings!
This product was created for Upper Elementary, Middle School, Junior High, or Secondary Students. It can be completed in one class period, then stretched out and enjoyed. 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 making a single copy for each student to complete you will share the link to the presentation. This assignment was intended to be completed as a collaborative slide, not individually.
If using as a traditional Four Corners Get to Know you Game, Students will create a slide with a question of their choice (I’ve included examples to help students brainstorm). You can then project the slides in your classroom and students will move to the corners of the room to show their response.
If using as a strictly digital product, students will create a game piece and a “In My Corner” Slide. Students will use their game piece to show their response to each question by where they place it on the slide! Such a fun way to interact and connect digitally.
You can assign this as a collaborative slide and have students interact and comment with each other. Have students present their slide with a brief explanation of their question and a brief defense of their response. This can be done in the classroom or over a Zoom Call or Google Meet. Students can even meet as a small group in a breakout room during a zoom call with their other classmates that answered the same as they did! 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.
