Me, You, Us! (Fun back-to-school puzzle activity)

(0)
This is a variation on similar “back-to-school”/”getting to know you” activities where students share information about themselves to get to know each other a bit better, and to allow the teacher to learn a bit more about each student. This activity is a jigsaw puzzle activity where each student receives a single piece of the jigsaw. They draw and write about themselves (using colour and decorations should be encouraged!) on their puzzle piece. In the end, students can help arrange their puzzle pieces for display on the wall. The nature of the puzzle pieces will allow all manner of combinations.
