This is a fun, easy, interactive icebreaker exercise to help students get to know one another. Even shy students warm up nicely to this activity. It involves giving students time to "mingle" in class and get signatures for a variety of categories (which teachers can edit as they wish). It requires about 15-20 minutes of class time for a class of 20-25 students. At the end of the activity, go over who signed each of the categories and chat about items of interest--you may be surprised at what you learn!
