Icebreaker Activity: This or That 1. Hand out to the students sticks with two opposing words written on each end. e.g. chocolate vs. vanilla, fame vs. money, etc.2. 2. Starting with myself, I'll tie the end of the yarn around my wrist. Then, I read out my stick and announce which This or That choose.3. Next, ask who agreed with me. Everyone who agrees raises their hand and I choose one to toss the yarn to in the class.4. The chosen student puts their hand down, wraps the yarn around their wrist, and throw it to someone else with a raised hand. This continues until no raised hand is left.5. The last student then reads out their stick and the game continues. 6. Eventually, the yarn will have woven a classroom web illustrating that we are all connected in some way.Source: http://amateurcrafthour.blogspot.ca/2013/10/this-or-that.html

Learning Consolidation & Check-In Activity: Reciprocal Interviewing A Think-Pair-Share activity where students get to interview the instructor. Students pair up with a neighbour to agree on one question they get to ask me. These questions can be about the course, what was covered in class today, or something fun about me as a person. Then, a representative from each group poses this question. I reserve the right to postpone or not answer something.
