I absolutely LOVE quick, easy and interesting icebreakers. I not only do one on the first day of school, I make the time to plug one in every day for the first week.
They are a super-fun way for me to learn about my students and for them to get to know their classmates, all of which helps promote a kind, caring and positive atmosphere; sort of like an extra family.
The “getting to know you” M & M or Skittle icebreaker, has as many names as they do colors, with a variety of ways to play the game. This is my version of it.
The packet includes: several ways to play the game; plus black and white as well as color templates, for both M & M’s and Skittles, so you can choose whichever candy you prefer.
I’ve included a variety of question templates, plus blank ones for you to dream up your own.
