I like Mrs.B's idea, sounds like fun!

One of the things I have done is to play an icebreaker game. I write a name of a famous American (or if it is World History, something from that) on slips of post its. Each student gets one, and the kids are broken into groups of 5 or 6.

The idea is to figure out who is on your back. They are only permitted to ask yes or no questions, for instance, "Is my person male?" Each person is allowed two questions per turn. Try to use fairly well known individuals with this age level. George Washington would be good, but not Rutherford B. Hayes. It's a nice way to start the year.

Oh, and a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!
