- Students will make baseball cards containing vital statistics about their classmates.
- The teacher will have cards with information about each student on them for reference.

- Enough film to take a photo of every student
- Construction paper cut the exact same size and shape as a Polaroid picture (cut one square for every student in the class)

- Ask student to decorate the construction paper using the crayons, pencils and/or markers.
- Attach the completed square to the back of the photograph using tape or glue.
- Gather students in a circle and have each pair of partners introduce one another using the baseball cards.
