Give students a warm welcome with these fun getting-to-know-you activities and unit plans.
A twist on the “All About Me” book., this accordion-fold version made with smartphone templates stands out (and up) thanks to its design. With a little folding, cutting, and coloring, students can create a personalized “smartbook”.
What You Need
- Smartphone Template printable
- Bristol board or heavy paper
- Magazines, colored paper, other collage materials
- Student photo
What to Do
Step 1: Print two Smartphone Template printables on bristol board or heavy paper.
Step 2: Cut out the templates, leaving 1/2" extra on the left side of one template. Use this to tape the two templates together creating a row of six smartphones.
Step 3: Attach a photo of each student to the first phone screen, then fill in other screens with "favorites". Have students add a drawing, photo, or collage to illustrate. Soon you'll know their favorite sports, subjects, and more!
This modern spin on a getting-to-know-you craft is fun for students and a great way to break the ice during the first week of school!
