Get to know your students on the first days of a new school year with this fun getting-to-know-you game.
To begin this icebreaker activity, students find a space of their own to work in.
There are 20 This Is Me Task Cards. Each task card provides the following:
- a snippet of information that may/may not apply to an individual
- an instruction to move a particular way.
As each card is read out, students respond appropriately if the information applies to them, e.g. jump up and down if they have an older brother. Students will find that there will be many cards that do apply to them and many that do not. They stand still for those cards that are not applicable.
The activity aims to encourage students to learn more about their classmates.
