Back to school idea - "We're looking back on summer, this is what we see!" Have students draw pictures of things they have done over summer break in sunglasses. You could also do it for things students are looking forward to this year.
I could use this activity as an ice breaker for the first week of school or as a classroom community builder. I could have the students sit in a circle or break them up into small groups and work on the ice breaker together.
This is a big puzzle piece for students to fill in as a get to know you activity for the first day of school. All students are an important piece of the puzzle! Maybe for a musical master"piece" board!
