Ice-Breakers

NaN
by Sarah Sahr | 22 Aug 2013
Resource Description: Ah, the first day of a new group of students. There is nothing better. If all has gone well, you don’t know anything about these people and they don’t know anything about you. Perfect! What a great time to play some ice-breakers (an “ice-breaker” is a small activity to help people in getting to know one another). However, icebreakers don’t need to be used only on that first day of school. Sometimes, icebreakers are best done at the middle of the year, even after everyone has gotten to know each other. Doing these types of activities in the middle of the year might surprise you: You just might learn something about your students that you didn’t already know.
Audience: Adult
Audience Language Proficiency: Beginner
Materials and Technology: Vary based on activity
Objective(s): SWBAT get to know one another!
