Materials: Numbers printed on small pieces of paper
numbers on scraps of paper so that there are doubles for each number and then
place them in a container. Each student pulls a number out from the container.
Return the container to the center of the circle. The teacher calls out a number
and the two students with that number get up and greet each other in the middle
of the circle. The students place their numbers in the container in the middle
of the circle.
Success: Remember that you will need two of each number and enough numbers
for everyone in the class. For example, if you have 24 students you will need 12
numbers. Decide before you start the greeting what type of greeting will be
used, for example a handshake, a wave, high five, etc. This greeting works well
to mix up usual patterns of greeting among students.
