My favorite icebreaker is an appropriate activity for any grade level! Prior to the class time, cut out 7 circles of different cf colors and size for instance, a red cup size circle, a blue large circle, ect. Gather the students into groups of 3-5. Have each group create a poster incorporating all 7 of the circles on one sheet of white paper. Give them only 30 minutes. They must create an image with the circles, but cannot include any words or phrases. You can really learn about the dynamic of the class through this activity-who are the leaders, the followers, the passive, ect. Have each group share their poster with the class as time allows. Post pictures up for parents during open house or back to school night!!
