Fishing to Know You

PDF | 6 pages|Grades: 2 - 5

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

Getting to Know You Games

It’s the first week of school, and you’ve (probably) been told by administration to hold off on teaching curriculum for the first week. 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 just need a copy of the resource and a container to put the questions in. Personally, I’d get a cheap fishbowl to be on theme, but you do you! Place the questions into your container, and let the activity begin! Students will go fishing for a question to answer for the whole class.

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