Create a positive classroom community with these English Language Arts team-builder and icebreaker activities. In a game much like the classic “21 Questions,” students use critical thinking as they walk around the classroom asking one another questions in order to guess the characters, people, or authors on the cards on their backs. Each card has information to help the students respond to the questions. This activity uses inquiry and cooperative learning to get students engaged. It’s excellent to use for back- to-school!
This 80-page bundle includes the following:
-teacher instructions with additional options and extensions
-handouts with open-ended questions to accompany the activities
-printable (in color or black-and-white) cards with a selection of 40 different characters (from these titles: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
