Here is a fun ESL class icebreaker to use in your first lesson. This is a fresh take on the traditional find someone who activity.
The teacher firstly tells the class that they want to find out some EXTRAORDINARY information. On the board the teacher writes I WANT TO FIND SOMEONE WHO… e.g has copied on a test, is scared of dogs etc. The teacher asks a few students if they have copied on a test to demonstrate the activity.
Hand out a piece of paper to each student and get them to write down questions that they want to find out!
