Baseball Cards

Objectives

  • Students will get to know one another while participating in a non-threatening activity.
  • Students will practice conducting an interview.
  • 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.

Materials

  • Copies of the Baseball Card Interview Questions
  • Polaroid camera
  • 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)
  • Crayons
  • Coloured pencils
  • Markers
  • Glue or double-sided tape
  • NOTE: This project works just as well if students draw pictures of one another rather than using photographs.

Procedures

  1. Pair each student with a partner.
  2. Ask each student to interview his/her partner (using the Baseball Card Interview Questions ) and to write down all of the information they gather.
  3. While students are interviewing one another, take a quick photo of each child.
  4. Once the interviews are finished, ask each student to transfer the information onto one of the squares of construction paper.
  5. Ask student to decorate the construction paper using the crayons, pencils and/or markers.
  6. Attach the completed square to the back of the photograph using tape or glue.
  7. Gather students in a circle and have each pair of partners introduce one another using the baseball cards.
