People Bingo remains one of the most popular ways to help students get to know each other on the first day of school. It's fun, it doesn't take a long time, it's easy to customize, and almost everyone knows how to play it.
Why play a game during introductions? Because adult students learn better and faster when they feel comfortable in the classroom, when they know a little bit about who is sitting next to them.
