This is a good activity for the first day or week of school. Have the students stand in a circle. Instruct them to remove one shoe and place it in a pile in the middle of the circle. After the students have returned to their place in the circle, tell them that they must retrieve one shoe and find who it belongs to. Once they find the owner of the shoe, they must find out one interesting thing that the person did over summer vacation. Give the signal to go and allow the students about three to five minutes to perform the activity. Have the participants return the shoes to their owners and come back to form a circle once more. Allow each student to tell about the person whose shoe they found.
