In this icebreaker, students place Rock, Paper, Scissors against each other.
When one player wins, the other player follows the winner to a new game, chanting the winner’s name. This process continues until there are only two players left.
At the end of the activity, half of the class will be chanting one player’s name, while the other half will be chanting the other player’s name.
Great activity for a younger audience, or an audience that needs an energy boost.
Should not be used as a definitive icebreaker activity, since students will not learn everyone’s name in the class. It does not provide context for each student.
To make sure everyone is on the same page, make sure to explain the activity in it’s entirety before having students stand and pair off.
