Icebreaker game: 1 sentence per pupil



Sheet with names of participants and one sentence per participant.


approx. 15-25 min


This helps the pupils to get to know each other and to rephrase questions from statements.

Beforehand, the two teachers make a list of all the pupils with a sentence that applies to them.

Examples: Marianne has returned from a one-year stay in the USA. Joel does a lot of sport, his favourite sport is volleyball.

The sentences of the two classes are mixed. All pupils are given a list of the sentences, but without names. Now they have to find out as quickly as possible which sentence goes with which pupil. To do this, the pupils rephrase the sentences.

Examples: Have you been to the USA? Do you do a lot of sport?
