Default Re: The Best ice breaker

If you have a class that is mature enough to handle the following ice breaker you should try it. Get a rubber ball that is really light and about the size of a kick ball that kids play with. They have them in any store like Wal Mart. Write questions all over the ball that ask basic questions. You could write things like "What is your name?" or "Where are you from?" You throw the ball to any student and his job is to answer the questions that the thumb of his right hand is touching. After answering the question this students throws the ball to another student. He does the same. I've had a lot of fun with this activity, but I've also had classes that just whip the ball at each other and it becomes dodge ball...
