Getting to Know Your Students Just Got Easier!
Perfect for Back to School, this fun icebreaker game will help students get to know each other and feel more comfortable in your classroom without any corny gimmicks or embarrassing questions. Concentric Circles focuses on getting students talking on a variety of interesting, low-risk topics.
How it Works:
Students arrange themselves in an inside circle and an outside circle, the inside facing out, forming pairs. Pairs discuss their answers to a getting-to-know-you question, then rotate for the next question, forming a new partnership. This game gives students the chance to have lots of one-on-one conversations with many of their classmates and helps them quickly feel more at home in your class.
Although this game can be played by any age, the questions in this game are most appropriate for grades 6-12. Younger students would still love it -- you just may need to edit a few questions to make them a better fit.
This game has been created as a gorgeous, animated PowerPoint presentation, complete with 20 questions; all you have to do is set it in slideshow mode and the game is on! No extra equipment is required. There is a Windows version and a Mac version. And it's EDITABLE
, so you can change or add questions to suit your students. It also works in Google Slides: Just upload the PowerPoint to your Drive, open it with Slides, and put it into presentation mode!
