Here's an Idea! Human Treasure Hunt
This video is excerpted from The First Day of School in a Responsive Classroom, which was filmed on the actual first day of school in Caltha Crowe's third grade classroom in 2007. Caltha mentions using this activity at arrival time on the first day of school in "Knowing All Our Students," our interview with her in the August 2009 issue of the Responsive Classroom newsletter. Of course, this is one you can adapt and re-use throughout the school year!
