With the first day of school quickly approaching, we wanted to share a fun SEL-themed icebreaker activity!

Breaking the Ice

"An icebreaker is a facilitation exercise intended to help members of a group begin the process of forming themselves into a team. Icebreakers are commonly presented as a game to 'warm-up' the group by helping the members to get to know each other."1

Back to school is usually a little awkward after being away from each other all summer. This activity provides individual prompts that encourage others to share their personality and promote a kind and caring classroom. It also promotes student engagement and participation!
