Some happy customer feedback is here:

’Great back to school activity! This model is great for inspiring students. The models are great for lockers. ‘

‘The students enjoyed creating these about themselves. I even had the teachers on my team create one in order for the students to learn more about them.’

‘This really caught my eye for a back to school activity to do with my Life Skills students 9-12 high school. It is so different than what I have seen and allows students to be creative.’

My scholars loved this activity. It was a welcome change to a typical icebreaker. 90% of my students currently play soccer, so that made it even more appealing. I now also have student art for my classroom walls!

My students enjoyed this get to know you activity. Simple instructions were easy for most of my 5/6″s to follow although I had to read the boxes to a few students. The extra activities were appreciated by me, especially for the early finishers.
