Product Description
This is a community building activity perfect for the beginning of the school year. I have used this activity to stimulate thought and discussion at faculty orientation, and I have also used it in a 9th/10th-grade dorm when I worked in boarding school.

Before the activity, prepare an “iceberg” on butcher paper with a dark marker: a mountain-like shape with a water level that leaves only the top 10% or so of the iceberg exposed. You should also provide pens appropriate for the activity. I prefer the fine-tipped Sharpies.

Read the instructions out loud and ask if anyone has questions. I then preserve a quiet atmosphere in the room as participants write their answers first on their handouts and then, when they feel ready, get up to write their answers (anonymously) on the iceberg.

When the activity is over, I give everyone a chance to read the iceberg and then ask for brief reflections on the activity – what did you learn? How did you feel? Etc.

I hang the iceberg in the classroom, faculty room, or other common space.

This activity is provided as a Word document. You will be free to edit it in any way, adding or deleting questions in any way you’d like to suit your unique community.

I hope you enjoy this activity as much as I have!
