I am not sure where this game originated, but I do know it is a student favorite!  

"Who Has the Ice Cube?"  

Step 1: The students sit in a circle.  

Step 2: You will need one baggie of ice cubes.  

Step 3: Choose one student to be Jack Frost.  

Step 4: The student (Jack Frost) goes to the center of the circle and hides his eyes.  The remaining students pass the bag around the circle while music is playing.  

Step 5: When the music stops, the students stop passing the ice cubes.  

Step 6: Jack Frost tries to guess who has the ice cubes.  The student with the ice cubes  becomes Jack Frost. 

Step 7: The game is then repeated.  

Want to help your students learn content while playing this game?

To tie in subject area content, the student must answer a question before become Jack Frost.  Task cards work well for this. Scroll down for some printable cards, or click HERE For 140+ free printable resources in our TpT store.

These plastic ice cubes also work well from our Amazon affiliate store as you won't run the risk of leaking water. :)
