Ice breakers: I love these get-to-know-you questions for the first days of school. Middle School grades. Could put these all in a box and have students draw out the question they have to answer. Or put them on the board and have kids shoot basketballs at the ones they want to talk about.
This is AWESOME for instant integration! The "Spiral Studies" cross-curricular team created a full set of FREE integrated team building lessons that fit together for the 4 major middle school subjects! This would be a perfect 1st day of school or special bonus day lesson for the entire teaching team to implement in each classroom!
