Classmate Cards for Boys
Help your students get to know each other by using these half-page friend cards. Nine different character faces are used with six varying background colors to allow for 54 child representations. One blank card is also included in this for those who would like to allow children to create their own card.
Each card asks a series of questions for the student to answer. Inquiries are made about basic things such as name, age, grade, etc., but also fun subjects such as a favorite ice cream, sport, animal, and character and more. There is even space for friends to write additional information.
Completed cards can be shared, passed around in a small-group activity, or used in a classroom display.
These cards may as well be used to create a fictional friend who teachers may want to refer to during the year as the focus for moral examples and such rather than using the individuals in the class in examples. This activity could also be used as an ice breaker.
Younger children who cannot write very well may still benefit from sharing information that an adult, parent, or older learner could write in for them.
A similar series of cards for girls is also available.
Focus: Getting to know fellow classmates, ice breaker activity
