A fun, getting to know you activity to do in the first few weeks of a new school year.
In this icebreaker activity, students cut and paste their age and their favorite things onto a template. The categories of favorites offered are:
In addition to providing several choices for each category, students also have the option to draw their favorites. After gluing their favorite things on the template, students then cut and paste clothing of their choice onto the picture of themselves and add hair, eye color, etc.
The completed worksheet could become an excellent prompt for young students to talk about themselves.
This is the perfect teaching resource for young students with limited reading skills.
