The 50 games and activities in this booklet can be used as warm ups for drama class or play rehearsals, as icebreakers for the first day of school, or as brain breaks before or after assessments in academic classes. Print out this booklet and keep it in a binder to delight your students when they deserve a reward or need a break. Your students will love these 50 active games!
You can put these games together to create a full improv unit, or use each one on its own for counseling groups, youth groups, summer camp activities, or a fun treat to build community and cooperation in your classroom.
The games are divided into the following categories:
2. Focus Games
3. Movement Games
4. Improv Games
Each game includes instructions for how to set up the room, detailed and clear instructions for play, and an explanation of the skills and benefits that each game develops in our students.
All of the activities have been tested and tried for years in my high school drama classes and the ninth grade summer bridge program at my school, but most games can also be played with younger students. My students request to play these games over and over! I hope you have as much fun sharing them with your students as I have with mine.
