This is the only icebreaker that I use with my high school science students! I've used it for over 5 years and it is always my favorite day of the year. This icebreaker activity allows you to 1) talk science on day one 2) randomly group students for your seating chart 3) spend time getting to know your students and 4) allowing them to get to know you! -by ⚛ Jen Siler's Classroom

Group Tables - These days group tables are considered to support students’ self-organized learning. While they are great for group or project work they have their disadvantages because some students permanently have their backs to the front and it might prove difficult to get their attention. Also there might be effects on students’ health if they constantly turn their heads to look to the front.
