Fostering teamwork and collaboration from the first day of school is crucial. This All About Me group puzzle is a fantastic way for students to work together at the start of the year and set a foundation for collaborative learning while getting to know one another. 

For this activity, each student is given a piece of a puzzle to decorate to represent themselves. Once everyone has completed their piece, the group assembles the puzzle. 

While assembling the puzzle, students introduce themselves to one another. The goal is to promote unity and demonstrate how each individual is a part of the classroom community.
