Move and Share Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 7 pages | Grades: PK - 2

A fun icebreaker activity to use at the beginning of a new school year.

This icebreaker activity combines a singing/action song with a ‘get-to-know-you’ discussion and is perfect for the beginning of the school year!

The activity begins with students standing in pairs. They perform actions while singing altered words to the tune of ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’. On completion of the song, students sit down with their partner to talk and get to know each other. Direct the students’ discussions by reading out a discussion prompt card. The goal is for the partners to find two things they both agree on. As soon as every pair has found two common answers, students stand and find a new partner, and the whole process is repeated.

This teaching resource includes both a ‘contact’ version and a ‘noncontact’ version.
