Crystal Ball Prediction
This initial "getting-to-know" one another game loosens up your class with laughter and giggles.
Supply the students with a list of topics to ask each other about. For example: name, pets, hobbies, favorite food
Pair them up. One student is absolutely silent as the other asks them questions ("Do you have any pets?") and that same student predicts what the answer is by writing it down.
After finishing asking all the questions the interviewers take turns standing up and introducing their partner with their predictions as they are corrected by their new friend (which is the first time they are allowed to share the truth).
Now switch off the person being interviewed and the person predicting. Create unexpected topics and relax with this activities strange results.
