Diversity & Social Inclusion: Friendship

Ice Breaker Activity

Diversity & Inclusion

Activity: This or That?

Join the Jamboard!

Do you have any take-aways from this activity? Did you have more in common with others than you thought? Or are you more unique than you thought?

This can be a great way to make friends!

  • If you find something in common (i.e. both like riding your bike or both like rock music), you can find things to enjoy together! (i.e. ride your bikes together or talk about rock music that you both enjoy!)


  • If you find differences with another person (i.e. that person likes math wayyy more than you do, you can ask them to help you with your math homework! Or teach you how to ride bike if you don’t know how!)
  • Friendships with people who are different from you are just as important as friendships with people who are similar
  • Do you have an example of a friendship that was built on your differences, rather than your similarities?
