Celebrate the first day of school, get to know your students, and create an amazing bulletin board display with a “We All Fit In” Collaborative Puzzle activity.
Looking for an All About Me Activity? What about a Back to School Bulletin Board?
Back to school means a whole new batch of students are coming into your classroom. On day one, get to know your students by having them complete a collaborative puzzle to show them that “We Fit Right In!”
- Give each student one puzzle piece. If you have more pieces than students, pull random pieces from the middle to give co-teachers or other staff to decorate, or color them a solid color to blend in.
- Students will draw a self-portrait and complete their piece using images, colors, and words that represent them.
- Once all pieces are complete, put the puzzle pieces in number order and staple them to your bulletin board to form a 5×5 puzzle showing off your amazing students.
In the end, students get to know each other a bit better, and you end up with an easy-to-assemble and beautiful bulletin board for the hallway.
