is a fun game that teaches children how animals move
and uses that vocabulary in a fun game of charades. It can be used for Verb Vocabulary, Morning Meeting activities, Brain Breaks, choice activities, for physical therapy or even for indoor recess!
It is fun and easy to play.
My class and I created a game one day when we were learning about verbs. I always enjoy hearing what ideas the class will come up with when you present them with a challenge. Ever since that was created about 10 years ago, my students have LOVED playing it. Now we have Sport Charades.
You can glue the pictures onto a colored popsicle stick or simply place them in a basket, box or jar. I usually placed the cards on sticks face down in a plastic jar with the sign attached to the front of the jar and kept it by my easel for easy access and it was always a great game to give a sub for a filler.
The children also enjoyed playing this during Indoor Recess and if they had a choice activity, they would play this in small groups or with a partner!
The directions are similar to the good old game of Charades except you are simply acting out the sport according to the directions. One child picks from the jar figures out what the picture and word shows, let’s you see it for proof and then acts it out for the class. The class gets 3 guesses. Whoever gets it correct, is the next person to act out the verb. If no one guesses it, I use my picking sticks, which have the student’s names on them, to randomly choose the next person to act it out!
