Icebreaker Options
Meeting
Participants will form into groups that are similar. Start with easily identifiable characteristics (shoe color, eye color, hair color). Then move to categories that encourage talking but still not too personal (place of birth, favorite food, number of siblings, number of languages spoken, favorite fast food restaurant). Move to more personal questions as participants are comfortable (hobby, strongest subject, future career field, where they want to live when they grow up, 
Mystery student
A simple small group icebreaker, the leader sends one player out of the room. While the chosen person is gone, the others sit in a circle and choose a leader. The leader starts any of the following simple movements:

  • Stomach patting
  • Opening and shutting the mouth
  • Hand waving
  • Foot stomping
  • Clapping

As the other players copy the leader’s movement, the player who has been outside comes in, stands in the center of the circle, and watches to find out which person is the leader. The leader changes motions, trying not getting caught. When the leader is guessed, repeat with another person serving as the leader and a new person guessing.
Who Has?
An icebreaker designed to help small groups get comfortable communicating with each other, this game requires everyone to speak with everyone else. Who Has? does require some advance preparation – the creation of a list of questions. Provide each person a sheet of paper and give instructions to find the answer to the questions. You can use the following questions or some of your own:

  • Who has the darkest brown eyes?
  • Who was born the farthest away?
  • Who has the most family?
  • What is the weirdest thing anyone has ever eaten?
  • Who has had the most embarrassing experience?
  • Who has the most siblings?

Question cards
You will need small pieces of paper to write on (note cards or post it notes will work), as well as writing utensils. Each student receives a piece of paper and writing utensil. They write a question on the paper; then you collect all the questions. Each student draws a new card. Play some music or set a timer and have students wander the room. When time is up, students find the nearest other student and pair up. They take turns asking their partner the question on their card and discussing the answer. After a predetermined amount of time is up, have them exchange questions and begin wandering again. Repeat the process for several rounds.
Jigsaw
This takes some prep. With a piece of paper, cut it into four unique shapes, creating a four piece jigsaw puzzle. Create enough puzzles for an entire class (7 unique puzzles would work for a class of 28). On the puzzle, you may add content specific problems, questions, images, etc. It should work so the pieces only fit with one puzzle. This creates small groups of four. As students are entering the classroom, have them draw a piece of the puzzle from a receptacle. Tell students they will need to find the other pieces of the puzzle to create a group. Together they solve the problem or complete the task and then share out after a set period of time. If all groups have the same task, it could be a race to add variety.
What am I?
You can prep this task ahead of time or have students create the cards. On small pieces of paper, write or draw single word items like animals, flowers, food items, etc. Have students pair up and randomly pass out the cards to students. Tell them not to look at them! They place the card/paper on their forehead with the pic/word facing out. There are two ways to play this game. One way is, their partner gives them one word clues until they can correctly guess. The other way is the person with the card asks yes/no questions of their partner until they can guess it.
Crossword puzzle
This has students come up one at a time to write their name on the puzzle and share an interesting fact about themselves. You will need a large piece of butcher paper or some other large piece of paper. The leader starts by writing their name on the paper, either vertically or horizontally, then telling the audience one interesting thing about themselves. Ask for a volunteer to go next or you can draw names if people are hesitant. The next person comes up and connects their name to the previous name like in a crossword. Continue this process, each person connecting their name to another and sharing an interesting fact, until all classmates have added their name.
Things in common
Students stand in a circle. One student steps forward and shares something about themselves; it can be anything (fav food, color, tv show or things like “I have 3 brothers”). For any student who agrees, they step into the circle as well and say “me too.” If no one steps in, congratulate the person on their unique feature; if others join them, congratulate them on having something in common.
Speed meeting
This icebreaker is designed to get to know as many people as possible in a small time. Have students create two circles, one on the outside and one on the inside, with the two circle facing each other. Once introductions are made (“hi, I am…), the leader gives the group a topic to discuss. Students have 30 seconds total to discuss their answers with their partners. At the end of the time, the leader will have students switch partners by having the inner circle rotate one person to the left. Try to choose topics that are both fun and insightful.
Possible questions:

  • If you could have lunch with anyone from history, who would it be?
  • If you could be any famous person, who would it be and why?
  • If you could be granted one wish, what would it be?
  • If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
  • If you could be any animal, what would you be?
  • Describe your perfect day
  • If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  • If you were stranded on a deserted island, what are 3 things you would want with you?

Beach Ball
Students stand in a circle. The leader has a beach ball (a balloon, or something round you can write and throw) with questions written all over it. Someone begins throwing the ball randomly for an assigned amount of time (5-10 seconds should do). Whomever has the ball when the time is up, answers the question their right thumb landed on. Repeat the process.
Possible questions:

  • What is your favorite color?
  • Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?
  • What was your first pet?
  • What kind of movies do you prefer?
  • Favorite ice cream flavor?
  • How many siblings do you have?
