“Things Related To Me”

(Classroom Ice-Breaker Activity)


Chinese professor teaching in classroom

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!his lesson is for “In-Person” lessons, and may not work very well for an on-line lesson.  But there are certainly no rules.  And with the technology available — and with the creativity of other teachers out there — perhaps you can adapt it for on-line as well.  I don’t know if this activity already has a common name.  But I call it…

“Things Related To Me”

(Because That Is Exactly What It Is All About)


  • Write and/or Draw about 5 things on the whiteboard that have SOMETHING to do with you
    • A good idea might be to have a mix of words, numbers, and pictures, dates, names, etc.
  • Inform the students/learners that each thing is, somehow, directly related to you
  • The students then have to guess how they are related to you
    • Make sure that they are using proper question structure
    • You can also let them work in groups to come up with ideas
  • Go, in turn, around the class getting people to guess what the “things” are and how they are related to you
    • Give them hints if necessary
  • You can also put just 1 thing on the board, and then the person who guesses correctly gets to be the next to put something up
  • The possibilities of how this can be altered are only limited by your imagination

And That’s That!…

Have An Excellent Day!
