It’s Back to School Time – Get ready for icebreakers!
How do you feel about icebreakers?
Personally, I have a variety of feelings towards this back to school tradition 😉 however, I find it humorous that we put our students through very similar paces!
I consider myself a bit of an expert with icebreakers (since I’ve experienced maybe 500-750? oy) and want to share one of my favorites.
Back to School Icebreaker – How to Play
To start, everyone selects 4 candies – they have to be different colors (gummy bears work perfectly for this!).
Next, download or print the list of questions color-coordinated with the candies. There are four questions to be answered by placing a candy in the appropriate box.
THAT’S IT! The purpose of this icebreaker is to compare our sheets to see what we have in common, then go around and give a brief summary. The gummy bears provide a quick (and delicious) visual.
If your school doesn’t recommend using candy, teddy bear counters could easily be used instead of gummy bears.
