Ice Breakers

Ice breakers help students feel comfortable around their peers by encouraging them to share information about themselves while learning about others at the same time. This becomes the basis for a strong community among the participants. Games can vary from learning the names of each other’s peer to sharing information about oneself. Intimate exchanges such as these being promoted through play help build relationships in the classroom, while helping the students get to know one another. Ice breaker games help students feel more relaxed interacting with one another in future games and activities.
