Breaking the Ice-Back to School Tips

2010 - 2011 School Year Teacher Guide
Teaching Tip: Breaking the Ice

Find 5-10 really interesting pictures or posters about 8"x10" in size. Laminate the pictures and then cut them into 4 equal pieces. Depending on how many students you have in your class, pick out the number of pictures that you need to equally distribute each piece to all students. For example, if you have 20 students, you will need 5 pictures which will yield 20 pieces. Shuffle the pieces and then randomly hand each student a piece. Ask the students to find the other pieces to complete the puzzle. It's a great ice breaker; it gets students to interact! Also, see our Printable Cooperative Group Tickets

Great idea! You could actually do this several times during the year with different themed pictures. It would be a great way to get students thinking about new units!

I just found your blog and I am very excited to have a look around!
