Does your school have an Open House, Meet and Greet or Orientation before the first day of school? Have your new students go around the room checking off some of the different places in their new classroom as they go.
This is a fabulous way to get your students to familiarize themselves with all the different areas in the classroom. Also a great first day of school (wasting time bc you're finished with the rules) idea. For Pre-K I would use pictures with words.
revise for a middle school math class, Classroom Scavenger Hunt - This could be a great start-of-year activity with some creative questions. Maybe also and end of the year activity: students make one for next year's class
End of the Year Activity - Class Scavenger Hunt Here's another fun idea for the last week of school. Let the kids go on a class scavenger hunt! They will walk around the class ask each other questions and find out who can fit in each square.
