Trading Card Icebreakers

Leave a comment

As a high school student, I found the most annoying first-day procedure to be introducing 24 plus students with their name and a token item about themselves. I was never ready to open up to a class on the first day, I could never remember all the names, my token line was always some throw away generic thing. There are other formats to introduce students. One of my favorite icebreakers is trading cards! With this activity, each student starts by making their own trading card with their name, a drawing, their favorite movie, and any other information about themselves. Then the students get up and circulate around the room in 2-minute intervals to trade cards and get to know their classmates.pokemon-cards-worth-00.jpg
