A creative getting-to-know you activity to complete in the first days of a new school year.
Use this activity to help students introduce themselves at the beginning of a new school year.
Students draw a personal coat of arms that represents their individual skills, interests and goals.
How to create a personal coat of arms
- Explain to the students that they are going to design a personal coat of arms that reflects who they are. If possible, show the students a sample coat of arms that you have designed.
- As a class, brainstorm some categories that each section of the coat of arms might represent e.g. personal strengths, passions and interests, goals for the future.
- Allow the students to choose a personal coat of arms template (two are provided in the resource). You may wish to enlarge these to A3 size.
- Once completed, encourage the students to share their personal coats of arms with the class. These could remain on display in the classroom throughout the school year.
