AS A TEACHER,
What sort of impression would you like to make on your learners?

Why use icebreakers? The aim is to foster a climate of trust, awareness and group cohesion in which creative collaboration can take place. They also help to focus participants’ minds on the matter in hand.

(Doughill:1987)

Why use icebreakers? These exercises help to wipe out immediate worries and concerns. They are also intended to put students in a relaxed, uninhibited state in which they are much more respective than they would otherwise be. And finally, they lead into an increase in awareness of others, and of oneself in relationship with others.
Maley and Duff (1987)
