Snowball Fight-students write 3 things about themselves on a sheet of white paper, w/o their names. At the end of 1 minute, each student grabs the nearest snowball and tries to guess who wrote it.

This is a great first day/week activity for getting to know students, and they will love it because it involves candy! They randomly choose an M out of the bag, depending on the color they choose they will answer a question about themselves. If some students do not like chocolate you could use Skittles instead. 0642
