A fun, getting-to-know-you game to play in the first days of a new school year.
Use this icebreaker game in the first few days of a new school year to help your students get to know each other.
How to play Icebreaker Bingo
There are many different ways to play Icebreaker Bingo! Here is one suggestion.
- Students walk around the room and chat with their classmates.
- When they find someone who can answer ‘yes’ to one of the questions on their game card, they ask that student to write their name over that square. Note: That person can only write their name over one square on that particular game card.
- When a student forms a row of five names (either horizontally, vertically or diagonally) on their game card, they shout BINGO! Note: The FREE square can be used as a part of their row of names.
Why not make the game more challenging by asking the students to create a particular pattern on their game card to win, e.g. make an ‘X’, cover all four corners, or go for the full house!
