Fishing To Know You

PDF | 6 pages|Grades: 2 - 6

A getting-to-know-you activity for the beginning of the year.

Getting to Know You Games

This game is perfect for the first week of school when you and your students get to know each other. The beginning of the school year is all about team building, classroom culture, routines, and expectations. So it’s time to stock up on getting-to-know-you games and activities!

For this activity, you need a copy of the resource and a container for the question cards. It would be awesome to use a fishbowl to really get into the theme!

  1. Add the ‘Fishing to Know You’ label to the side of the container.
  2. Place the questions inside.
  3. Let the activity begin! Students will go fishing for a question to answer in front of the class. 🐟🐠🎣

Use it as part of an icebreaker activity, getting your students comfortable being out the front of the class from the get-go!

We have a lot more activities like this that are sure to make you go 🤩 !
