    Free!! big puzzle piece for students to fill in as a get to know you activity for the first day of school/social skills group.

    Team - Classbuilding Ideas + People Hunt : Students search for classmates who have matching characteristics and record their answers on this form. An excellent activity for helping students get to know the others in the classroom. And this activity can develop student's speaking ability. A good little Icebreaker during the First Week of School.

    Great concept that could be used as an ice breaker at the beginning of the year or with different questions to survey students' prior knowledge at the beginning of a new unit. Could be easily translated into French, Spanish, etc.
