I Am Searching for Someone Who

Use this Icebreaker to Get Students Mingling

  • Grades: 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

Materials Needed: I’m Searching for Someone Who… (PDF)

Time Needed: Approximately 30 minutes
 

Activity Guidelines: Have students fill in the ‘my favorite’ column for each of the listed categories. After all students have completed this task, have everyone circulate the classroom attempting to get the names of students who have filled in the same favorite item for a given category. (ex. If my favorite book is Tears of a Tiger, I must find someone else who listed that book as their favorite and write that person’s name in the last column). Students may not have any individual’s name listed more than once. The student who completes this task first wins.
