Two Ways to Know Each Other

Found in: back to school; icebreakers

At the start of the year, I use two different methods to help us get to know each other. The first is to have the students look around the room until they make eye contact with someone they barely know. Each pair sits together and talks for a timed two minutes. When the time is up, the students introduce their partners to the class. We all learn about each other and I learn about each student's memory and ability to share with the group. The second is to have each student pull a strip from a roll of toilet paper. They count the squares and have to tell the class one thing about themselves for each square they have. The toilet paper creates giggles and relaxes the students when it's their turn to speak.
