Getting To Know You

Continuing along the “First Day of School” series, I devised another activity which should break the ice with students and create positive conversation. It is titled “Getting To Know You” and you can find it below. After completing the questionnaire, the class will sit in a circle, and each student will read his/her answers, while the other students will have the opportunity to comment and converse together based on these answers. This will set a positive vibe in the class and loosen up the atmosphere.

This is a short questionnaire intended to get to help us get to know each other. Please be honest. If you are not comfortable with any of the questions, you do not have to answer them. All in formation will be kept private, and you will not be marked on it. We will discuss your answers together upon completion.
