When I was an intern, my directing teacher did a really cute icebreaker activity. She had a group of animals that she reviewed and discussed with her students. Then she asked, "if you were an animal, which animal would you be?" The students each picked an animal card, colored it and wrote his/her name on it. They took turns explaining which animal they would be and why and then added their card to a graph.
I really liked this activity so I decided to make my own version. I don't plan on using all these animals, I think 18 choices would overwhelm the kids, I just couldn't decide which animals I wanted to use! I also couldn't decide if I wanted to print colored cards (to save time) or allow the kids to color the cards on their own, so I made both! Enjoy! :)
