This packet includes 4 options for activities to be done on the first days of class. I often have students that are in more than one class so it is nice to have options to do for each class.
The download includes the following:
- "Would You Rather": This is a fun game-of-preference will really get the conversations going. Questions were picked to be geared toward anatomy/physiology and healthcare. Also included are questions geared towards determining the learning styles (auditory, visual, kinesthetic and verbal) of your students. Regular PDF and fillable PDF versions included for distance learning option. Instructions also included.
- "Medical Rebus Puzzles": This activity is a great way to get your students to begin using their reasoning skills while having fun. Included are 12 puzzles all using medical based idioms and phrases. Regular PDF and fillable PDF versions included for distance learning option.
- "All About Me: Anatomy Edition": Putting a spin on the normal first day questionnaires, this activity is a great way to learn a little about your students while incorporating anatomy/physiology in the questions. Regular PDF and fillable PDF versions included for distance learning option.
- "Draw a Pig": This was my first day go-to game for many years and my students loved it. After being asked to simply draw a pig, students will "learn" all about how that relate to their personality. Once the results are revealed, it allowed a great discussion on how the medical field and science differed from the theoretical aspects of the game. Regular PDF and fillable PDF versions included for distance learning option. Instructions also included.

Great first day activities!
My students really enjoyed the "medical twist" on would you rather! Thanks for a great resource!
Made the first day of school planning so much easier!
I just bought this set of activities in December because I wanted to have something to engage the students each day in online learning. I love that they are Anatomy/Health Science focused and can be used to get the students interacting!
Students love the pig activity. They are always interested in learning about their personalities.
