Regardless of the amount of time you have spent with your students.....there is always room for team building! :)
One of my favorite team building games to play is called The Best Game. How great is that title?? I mean the title alone should tell you that you need to play it!
I have played this game with kids AND adults---and everyone always has a great time! The purpose of this game is for students (or adults) to get to know one another and showcase completely random talents and skills.
Here's a snapshot of how to play the game---but you can download the WHOLE game including the category cards) for FREE in my TPT store. Just click here. :)
I always pass out the category cards to the teams and let them collaboratively decide who gets what card--this is a great way to get kids talking and becoming a "team." Side note: Please ignore my ugly index cards....I ran out of time to cut out cute category cards. Ha!
Here is one of the category competitions in action.....It was "The Farthest.....to throw a paper airplane."
If you are looking for a great game to get kids talking, working as a team and having fun......then The BEST Game is the game for you!
Play it....you won't regret it!
