Ice Breaker - Things in Common Activity

Ice Breaker - Things in Common Activity

This activity is for learners to get to know more about each other. It can be used as a warmer or ice breaker at the beginning of a lesson. Hand out the worksheet and have students work in pairs to fill it in. They need to talk to other people in the class to find out anything that they may have in common. Works well for a speaking activity. Is a lot of fun!
