This website is filled with some fun ideas to give students the opportunity to get to know one another as well as become comfortable around one another on the first day. Some activities are ones that can be done with little to no preparation and some need just a few minutes so that students have a slip of paper with some direction on it. Whichever activity that you pick is sure to get kids excited and involved because all the activities are fun to do. – Kaitlyn Maratik
