My friend Mrs. Barber in Oregon shared a really fun icebreaker activity when I was there last week. We have had pen pals between our seventh grade classes, and it was time to meet. Since there are very few more-awkward moments that two “sevies” trying to be cool and meet new people at the same time, we played a game.
It’s really quite simple. Everyone was given a marker, and removed their shoes. They were given 3 minutes to gather as many signatures on one foot as possible. SUPER FUN.
It was great because it forced Schloss proximity, and conversation, but didn’t allow for much “terrifying eye contact.”
