Teamwork, Communication Skills & Get to Know You Games/Activities
Partner sticks... Each has the name of a famous character... Eg Aladdin and Jasmine or Sully and Mike Wazowsku. Kids pull a stick and when all sticks are out, kids find matching character. Love this way to randomize pairs. the-teacher-next-...

Minefield -- Duct Tape Teambuilding Game - YouTube This would be a great game at the beginning of the year. It would help kids work together as teams and build trust. Its also great for focus, when everyone is talking, you have to listen for your partner.
This "Brown Bag Biography" activity is a fun, easy way to get to know your students, and a great way for them to share a little about themselves with the rest of the class! Everything is included, except for, well... the paper bags. ;) #backtoschool #gettoknowyou #brownbagactivity
Mm team building activity. Great for peer to peer elementary kids.
Team - Classbuilding Ideas + People Hunt : Students search for classmates who have matching characteristics and record their answers on this form. An excellent activity for helping students get to know the others in the classroom. And this activity can develop student's speaking ability. A good little Icebreaker during the First Week of School.
Icebreaker: Put 15 random objects in a bag, pass around the bag and people pick one and tell how it relates to them. This is fun - it's amazing how creative people can get about the most mundane things like a wrench or a boot or a piece of chalk.
