The first icebreaker activity sounds like fun. Student toss a ball of
yarn (holding onto the end) and say their name and an interesting fact
about themselves.... buy the time you have made it around the room,
you have created an interesting web of yarn. This web could then be
displayed - "Art Connects All" - and include pictures of the
students... or images of how art connects the various subjects.... or
maybe add images from other cultures (for cultures that are
represented by your students) for "Cultural Threads".... what ever...
I think you get the idea.
