Use the following worksheet as a fun activity to break the ice in the classroom on the first day. Your students will love this challenge that will get even the shyest student chatting and getting to know their classmates. Make a copy of the worksheet for each student and then, tell them that they have 5 minutes to walk around the room with their paper and find someone that fits the description in the box (they’ve either done something, like something, have something etc.) The student needs to initial in the box. The first student to fill in their whole sheet gets a small prize. Tell the students that as they ask for information, they must introduce themselves first and exchange names. Walk around and monitor them to make sure they are following the politeness rule and to get to know the students better yourself.
Enjoy the back to school season!
