Hello all! Figured I'd try reaching out to the Classroom 2.0 network for this one. A co-worker of mine is in charge of providing new teachers at our school with some handy "Getting to Know You" / First Week of School activities for Middle School-aged students. It's always a challenge finding things this age group will gravitate to. Often, they have one foot in elementary and one foot speeding towards....oh, Age 21!
I welcome any ideas/mini lessons any of you care to share! I'll be sure to post what I receive on this blog so we can all benefit!
