Icebreakers: Volume 8

Each year, we fear we may not be able to come up with a dozen new icebreaker activities to help teachers get to know their students — and to help students get to know one another — and each year the e-mails keep coming in. This year, we introduce more than 25 new teacher-tested getting-to-know-you activities in two new volumes.

Ice Breakers

“For an icebreaker to be used with any grade. Throw out a role of toilet paper and tell the students to take as much as they need. (Don’t tell them what it’s for). After everyone has taken some, have them tear the toilet paper at the perforations. For each square of paper in their possession, they have to share one fact about themselves.”
