Games & Icebreakers
This game gets students to interact with students that they wouldn't normally interact with. Here is what you do to get your kids talking with one another.
Make a PPT slide that asks a simple question, like “Of the following kinds of pizza, which kind do you prefer?” Then designate each corner of the room as one kind of pizza (cheese, pepperoni, veggie, “the works”). If your question could have more than four answers, use the middle of the room, too. Tell students to move to the corner/place that lines up with their answer.
When the students get to their corner, ask them to introduce themselves and talk about why they picked this answer. After a minute or so, grab everybody’s attention, and ask another question. Don’t forget to make it clear which corner corresponds with which answer.
Sample Questions Might Be:
1. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
2. What is your favorite thing to do for fun?
3. If God were to describe your family, He would say they were….
If you want to speed up play and make the game more user-friendly, label each corner on your PPT slide. That way, students can just look up to the screen for direction.
Now, go mingle.
