Bell Work

Find Someone Who…

Have your class learn more about each other by doing this activity in the morning. Make a 5x5 grid on blank paper and make enough copies for each student. Title it "Someone who..." Write different things in each block, such as

  • favorite color is orange
  • has been to Mexico
  • loves computers

The students need to go around the room and find somebody who fits each of the descripitions and write their name in the block. The goal is to use everyone in the classroom at least once, if possible.
