The following activities could
be used with all ages as a way to facilitate team
building and introduce students to one another. I
use these at the beginning of the school year with
my class, as well as anytime when I have the opportunity
to meet with new groups of kids. They can also be
used when teaching a “mini-class” or
summer school classes with small groups of students
who may have never been in a learning environment
