PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This fun icebreaker is perfect at the beginning of the year, to help students get to know each other. A “human scavenger hunt” helps students- and their teacher- learn more about each other from a different perspective.

The handout we've created includes 30 questions that students use as prompts for speaking with their peers. Each student receives a copy of the handout, and walks around the room searching for students who can sign their name in one of the boxes.

Students will:
(1) try to find one student to sign each of the boxes, asking questions of their classmates.
Examples include:
- Can say "friend" in another language
- Can name the seven continents
- Has volunteered
If the answer is yes, the students signs their name. The first students to get all of the boxes filled in, wins!
(2) answer questions about themselves to other students

Using a global theme, the Global Friendship Scavenger Hunt is set apart from other kinds of activities as it opens students’ perspectives and tests their experiences and knowledge about the world, world languages, and geography.

Great times to use this friendship activity:
- at the beginning of the year, to help to get each other better
- to kick off International Week
- any day in ESL class or Social Studies, as a conversation starter
- as an icebreaker at the beginning of a world language class
- in an extra-curricular, such as Scouts
- for orientation for study abroad students or before a class trip
