What educators are saying

My students who are new to high school found this assignment easy to accomplish and had fun doing so! It was a great way for me to get to know my students as well.


The Best High School Ice Breaker!
This is the only icebreaker that I use with my high school science students! I've used it for over 5 years and it is always my favorite day of the year. This icebreaker activity allows you to...

1) talk science on day one
2) randomly group students for your seating chart
3) spend time getting to know your students and
4) allowing them to get to know you!

✱ A 3-page PDF file with the lesson plan and instructions
✱ A 4-page Word file with 60 icebreaker questions that you can edit/add to/delete
✱ Terms of use page

✔note: there is some prep involved in this activity. You will need small containers of some sort. I used plastic film canisters as seen in the picture, but any small container will work. However, once created you can use them for years and years as I have!

If you have any questions, requests or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you!
