At the start of every semester, we all face the task of finding ways to get our students comfortable and connected. One activity that I’ve used is the friendship quilt discussion where students ask four classmates four questions to get to know them better. Below is the link to download the PDF, directions, and a preview picture of the activity.
- Review the questions with the class.
- Explain to them that they will ask those four questions to four different people.
- Debrief after the activity by asking students to share things they learned about their classmates.
