What Is an Ice Breaker?

Ice breakers (or icebreakers — both spellings are correct) are games that help "break the ice" for a newly formed group of people. In an elementary school setting, ice breakers "warm up" shy students and help new classmates get acquainted, learning one another's names, finding common points of interest, and more. Each of the digital and printable ice breakers included in this collection has been created by a teacher to be classroom ready!
