Do You Prefer – Back to School Ice Breakers

It’s already mid-August and I know most of you are gearing up for back to school. When your students enter on day one, bleary eyed from the lack of sun and glaring up at you moodily for ending their amazing summer, how do you get them excited and interested?

A lot of the LEAP activities our WorldStrides Tour Directors do during trips include either an engaged discussion typically involving role-playing or first-person dialogue, or an activity that gets them moving and thinking with equal vigor. What do you opt for on day, or even week one?

Do you prefer discussions or activities to break the ice on the first day of school?

We’d love to hear how you get your students pumped!Want to get your students psyched outside of the classroom?
