A fun, getting-to-know-you game to play in the first days of a new school year.
To begin this icebreaker activity, students find a space of their own to work in. This game works well when the class stands in a large circle.
There are 20 This Is Me Task Cards. Each task card provides:
- a snippet of information that may or may not apply to an individual
- an instruction to move a particular way.
As each card is read aloud to the students, they respond appropriately if the information applies to them, e.g., jump up and down if you have an older brother. Students will find that there will be many cards that do apply to them, and many that do not. They simply stand still for those cards that are not applicable.
The aim of the activity is to encourage students to get to know more about their classmates at the beginning of the school year.
