There’s so much to cover between room layout, handling various drills, creating social contracts, and assigning seats, so I love to get students engaged and smiling by having them create from the very start. One of my favorite lessons to get students creating and to cover important information is an art room scavenger hunt. This is our first class activity in second through fifth grades, and it ends with a beautiful collaborative mural for the hallways.
