Name Map-This is a great getting to know you activity.  The teacher creates one and shares it with the class.  The teacher then allows the students to create their own "name map".  The middle symbol represents them and then they have other symbols branching off of the center symbol that represent who they are and their interests.  It also goes well after reading Chrysanthemum.

Back to school! Name maps. Great icebreaker for the day/week of school. Fun way to get to know your students. Makes a cute back to school bulletin board too.
