First Day of School Stations - Back to School Activity
Using stations on the first day of school sets the tone for the year. Show students that they will be out of their seats, engaged in learning, and collaborating with classmates in your classroom. These six stations, some group tasks and some independent tasks, are intended for completion within a 45-minute period. These stations can be used in any subject or grade level, and all of the station directions and activities can be edited to fit the needs of your classroom.
Students use hash tags to practice one-word summary writing. Can use as quick check for understanding of events, people, or theories. What an outstanding strategy!! Could even use at the end of a lesson to put on exit slip.
