First Class Ice Breaker is a simple activity to get classes off to the right start. The summer holidays are over and the first class is just around the corner. Although it feels like you have forgotten how to teach, don’t panic! This first post of the new school year has a simple activity to get you through that first class.
This activity is a great mixer activity to get students talking and getting to know each other.
