  1. Ice breakers
    I use brain teazers, such as the ones that are in squares and are word or “saying” related. Such as “mutiny on the high seas” would have the word mutiny and then underneath that would be a line and then 4 cccc’s. I have 12 to a page, give them at the beginning of the class and some different types when they come back from each break and lunch. I find this appeals to most people, is not threatening and is fun at the same time. I would be happy to send you some examples.

    Hi Claire

    A very lighthearted one that worked well for us was to hand a questionnaire to everyone, allowing 5 mins to complete (with no talking). The questions would be along the lines of name, area joining, starsign, favourite food/drink/film/holiday location/music/book,and the sheet was bright and colourful.

    Once the sheets were completed, everyone stood up and had to talk to as many people as possible as the objective of the game was to meet as many people that had something the same as you (ie, both Virgo) as each match scored a point.

    At the end (after 10 mins or so) everyone adds up their score. The winner could get a prize (company pen/bag/stress ball – something cheap!).

    Sounds a bit naff but worked with groups of 10-50!
