Here is an icebreaker for you to try:
Have everyone sit in a circle with one person standing in the middle. There should be one less chair than people. The person in the middle asks a question like "who has a pet dog?" Everyone who does must stand up and switch seats. The person in the middle must also find a seat (sort of like musical chairs). The only rule is that when you stand up, you cannot return to your own chair, nor to a chair right next to you. This is a good way to learn interesting facts about people while having a little fun.
