In the past I've never really done icebreaker activities since I have always had kids that knew each other...sometimes I actually wished they didn't know each other so well. This year I am teaching freshman, sophomores, and seniors in various different classes. The school is one where kids come from many different schools so I'd like to try to do something for the freshman that most likely won't know each other. If you remember my back to school plan, this is one of the things I am planning for the second day of school.
In organizing my files, I came across this one that apparently I found before and entirely forgot about. I wished that I know where it came from (computer says it was created 8/12/2009). I'm like 99% sure that I didn't make it up, but I tried to look online and I can't find it anywhere. I like these scavenger hunt activities because it makes them talk to different people, but I like this one even more because it is a good mix of math and non-math type questions. I also like the fact that it requires them to write the answers down in the boxes, not just get someone to sign. I plan to tell them that I will participate too..I have my eye on the calc question :)
