This book as a ton of activities to help build different levels of community within a classroom. Laurie S. Frank is a phenomenal person and built the Stress Challenge program in the Madison Metropolitan School District in Wisconsin.

I have a cool 'getting to know you' survey -- it's the first thing I give to students (I got it from someone on Edutopia, too!), and helps me get to know their interests, activities, and much more. If you send me your email I'll send it to you.
