B. Development-

 1. Introduce self as instructor in a way which establishes authority. However, also show a friendly side.

Students will stand up and form a closed circle. In this activity students will pass an invisible object around as if it were a tangible object. However, when passing the object they can change the shape, dimensions,texture, and weight of the object. When receiving the object they have to receive it as it was, then continue to change it. Continue this game until each student receives and gives the object. The objective of this exercise is expand their cognitive processes beyond textbooks and assignments. It is a free mind activity, where there is no right or wrong answer, it also creates respect within each-other, establishing a comfort level with their peers. 3. The next activity is also an icebreaker game. The grouping game is dictated by the instructor (myself) in which students are told to walk around in a designated area slowly just passing each other by calmly when the instructor says aloud some type of category. For example, "Shoes". In which the students are to form groups without speaking finding students who are similar with them in that specific category. Then instructor will go through group one by one and ask on the count of 3 the students say aloud the one word that they each believe binds them together. This also creates a comfort level within the students forming bonds and strengthening that comfort level for future weeks.
