For the past 4 years I've taught eighth grade in a school set up with teams. The kids are put onto a team in sixth grade and stay on that team for all three years. This means by the time they got to me they knew each other very well (almost too well a lot of the time). Because of this, there was no real need for icebreaker activities.
This year, I will be teaching in high school where most of the kids did not go to middle school together so I'm looking for some fun out of the ordinary getting to know you/teambuilding type activities. I've got one or two things that I've used from time to time but I'm looking for more ideas!
If anyone has any suggestions on things that you've used, I'd love to hear! Thanks!!
