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.
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!
