Sponge Activities

Name That Student

Ask your students to line up in alphabetical order by themselves. They will need to work with each other to find out whose name comes first, and the order of subsequent students that have names starting with the same letter. This is a great activity to do as an ice-breaker because students must meet each other in order to find out what their names are.
