Large groups can be intimidating, especially when everyone doesn't know each other very well. If you want to break the ice, try one or two icebreaker games.
Icebreaker games can get everyone to relax and give everyone a chance to know one another before working or learning together. Here are two icebreaker games that are perfect for large groups.
The best icebreaker games are those that are simple, and this one couldn't be any easier. All you have to do is gather everyone in a circle and get them to toss a ball to one another. When someone catches the ball, they shout out their name. It doesn't take long to play and it's much more interesting than nametags.
This icebreaker game is nice because it is informal and fun. Best yet, it's easy to play. After everyone is seated, bring out five different items. They can be anything from a baseball bat to a cardboard box to a coffee cup. Hold each item up one at a time and encourage everyone to shout out an alternative use for the items or a phrase associated with the items.
