This would be a very fun activity the first week of school! Teacher says a statement (ex. Switch sides if you like hot dogs more than pizza.) and the students either stay or move. The kids could also talk about why they did/didn't move. Fun back to school ice breaker!
The first day of school can cause anxiety for many children. They often worry if they will know anyone or make friends. Ice breakers are quick, fun activities that help put students at ease and often help them realize commonalities among their classmates.
Create this on my own. Pass out M on the first day during table work time. Depending on which color they have they must answer a question. You can do this activity through out the year changing up the questions!
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.
