Hi, I'm Katy Hill. I'm a fourth grade middle school teacher, and these are some icebreaker activities for fifth graders on the first day of school. A good icebreaker for fifth graders is a little game. It's where you tell two truths and one lie. So basically, a student and you might want to give them some time beforehand to kind of think through it, but they have to think of two things that are true about themselves and then one thing that is not true. For example, they might say that the two things that are true about themselves is that they play basketball and that they play soccer, and then the one thing that's not true might be that they walk to school, so that each person goes around and they tell those three things and then the class has to decide which statement was a lie. So, that just kind of, first of all, it lets them get to know each other, and lets the teacher get to know them, but at the same time they're having fun and working together to guess which one was true and which ones were not.
