Getting to Know My Classmates – QR Code Template

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF, Word | 1 page | Grades: 2 - 6

Use QR codes to get to know your new classmates at the start of a new school year.

Looking for a fun, getting-to-know-you activity that can be done remotely or in the classroom? This QR code template is the perfect resource!

Have your students create a video or voice recording introducing themselves to their classmates. Then, depending on your student’s tech-savviness, have your students create a QR code or you create one for each student to attach to their template. Each QR code will go straight to the video or voice recording that each student created. Have them finish by using a photograph of their head to attach to the body template.

Now, students will be able to learn about their new classmates no matter where they are located!

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF, editable Word, or google slide version.

    Once I open this document in Google slides, where do I find QR's for each kid to apply yo the slides so each kid has a different one with their name assigned?

      Hi Heather! You will need to create the QR codes for each child yourself. We have step-by-step directions in our blog, Getting to Know You Activities for Distance Learning. If you type the blog title into the search bar you can find it! We hope you and your students enjoy this activity. It is one of our favorites this back-to-school season!
