Introducing Yourself ACTIVITY 4

Learning Objective: To teach children the proper way to introduce
themselves

​​Skill: Making friends

Tell the group:

There are specific steps that people usually follow when they
introduce themselves to others. When people are meeting for the
first time, it’s polite to tell each other their names. They try to appear
friendly and interested in the person they are meeting. Grownups
usually shake hands too. First impressions make a difference, so when
you meet someone new:

• Stand up
• Look the other person in the eye
• Smile
• Say, “Hi. I’m — — — — — — — — — — — — — — ——.”

Choose two children to role-play introducing each other. Then ask each child
to choose another person and introduce one to the other, until the entire
group has been introduced.
