The 5 Minute Ice Breaker

The 5-minute ice breaker is called “Take a Stance,” and here’s how it works:

Set It Up: Everyone starts with their cameras OFF. Explain that you’ll be asking a series of questions and everyone has to pick between two options with their cameras. For example:

  • Does pineapple belong on pizza? Yes or No?
    Turn your camera ON for YES… (cameras off) Turn your camera ON for NO.
  • Do you prefer the mountains or the beach?
    Turn your camera ON for mountains…(cameras off) Turn your camera ON for the beach… (cameras off)
  • Would you rather have a horse’s tail or a unicorn horn?
    Turn your cameras ON for horse’s tail… (cameras off). Turn your camera ON for unicorn horn… (cameras off) etc.

Have fun creating your own questions, and make it as silly or as serious as you like! You could also use it as a quick virtual opinion poll.

Note: This ice breaker works best for environments where everyone can have their camera on and be visible at the same time.
