Quick Lesson for First Day of School

Hi all,

Happy new school year! I'm looking for a short quick lesson (10-30 min) to serve as an ice breaker for elementary science on the first day of school. Any suggestions?

My Science Professor asked us to do a discussion on BB that is titled science about me, we were to answer only one question. I think if it were to be used with students and have them do all of the questions and share it but their peers it would work great as an Ice Breaker. I will attach something similar.

Thats a great activity Eunice! My professor gave us the same one on our first week this semester. It engages the students by getting them to think about the word science and maybe even its connotations, while letting them express somethings about themselves. they would also have fun if they can color the drawings!

I really like this idea for the new school year.

Hello Eunice,

Thank you for sharing. We also had this activity at the beginning of the semester with our Science Professor and I think it would be great for our future little students as well, it will help them to develop social skills while sharing with other students.
