Superquick Introductions Icebreaker Exercise

by Kim Boggs
(Columbus, Ohio)

When teaching a class that has very little time for introductions, I use this superquick icebreaker exercise.

I ask everyone to tell me their names, where they work and what they had for dinner the night before. There are typically 20 people in this class. As they go around the room, all the participants are interested to hear what was for dinner.

After they are finished I thank them for introducing themselves and say something like like "and, thanks for telling me what you had for dinner. It doesn't really apply to our topic today, but I am trying to decide what to have for dinner tonight!" Everyone has a chuckle and we get on with the class.

This icebreaker exercise takes very little time, but allows people to begin to make connections - even based on food preferences!
