Marvelous M's Simple and yummy way for students to get to know each other! Each M candy represents something different and then the students could either share with a group or you could share as a whole class. Another great thing with this ice breaker is, you can make the food whatever you want (ex. have options, make it healthy, etc.)
This is a great first day/week activity for getting to know students, and they will love it because it involves candy! They randomly choose an M out of the bag, depending on the color they choose they will answer a question about themselves. If some students do not like chocolate you could use Skittles instead. 0642
M&Ms Feelings Games- I've made two versions of the M&M Game, the first one focuses on general feelings and the second focuses on feeling Angry and calming down. You can either print a game board for the group to share or print mini boards so each person has their own. I laminated mine so we can use them again without getting them ruined. Each person will need a fun size bag of M&M's or an assortment of 10 or so M&M's.
