It is a new semester. It is a new opportunity to challenge and engage young minds. Are you a, “normal” teacher? Don’t be a normal teacher. Normal is a cycle on your washing machine. How about moving outside of your comfort zone with an unusual icebreaker? Try the paper plate activity.
Paper Plate Directions:
This simple activity has several benefits: 1) It is unusual and grabs the student’s attention; 2) It gives students a moment to reflect and have an immediate voice in the classroom; 3) The instructor receives some valuable information from the students; and 4) You have created a warm, inclusive environment where learning can flourish by engaging the students.
How can you use/adapt this activity in your class? Please share your favorite icebreaker or brain-warming activity.
