Icebreakers Vol. 1 copy.051


Students will have to work through difficult circumstances to complete this activity.


  • Break your students into teams
  • Give each team a tarp
  • Tell them that the tarp is an ISLAND and the grass is the OCEAN
  • Then instruct the teams to fold their tarp once without stepping in the ocean
  • Keep giving them instructions to fold the tarp one fold at a time until they cannot fold it anymore
  • The team who has the smallest tarp at the end is the winner.


  • Students will have to communicate in order to continually fold the tarp
  • They will have to be creative to make more space (Hold one another, etc.)
  • They will have to endure the lack of space
