Give each student a page of blank paper and tell them to draw their portrait. This is usually met with nervous giggles but students will do it. Then ask them to write 4 or 5 key phrases or words connected to them, for example, 3 children. Pin the papers around the room and ask the stuydents to amble around witha pen in hand and write questions under the information they read: for example, if a student reads 'science' they may want to write, 'are you a scientist?' or @are you a science student?' When the students are finished the questions that have been posed should be answered, this can be done as a class or in smaller groups. It's good fun because the students are mingling and coming together from the beginning.
