Four corners is a game that will get your students up and moving around as they get to know each other with favorite things questions. This quick and low prep activity is perfect for back to school, brain break, classroom community builder, or morning meeting activity.

To set up, label your corners with the included signs. Then display the PowerPoint presentation. Read a question aloud, and then signal for students to move to the corner of the room labeled with the number that matches their answer to the question.

Social Distancing Ideas:

Due to your school's social distancing guidelines, it may be not be ideal to have students move to four corners of the classroom together. Here are two ideas how to use this resource while keeping students at their desks:

✱ Students can write their number answers on personal whiteboards. To add a little movement, they could do jumping jacks, for example, while waiting for the teacher to say "show your boards."

✱ The class could decide on 4 different exercises, with one assigned to each number. Students can do the exercises to represent their answer. Example: 1- squats, 2- run in place, 3- hop on one foot, 4- sit ups.

Virtual Learning Options for Video Meetings:

✱The 2nd idea from above could work for a virtual learning by assigning an exercise to the corresponding corner numbers.

✱ Students could write their number answers to each question in the chat.

✱ The teacher could ask each student individually what their answer is. This might be best if you only did 1-2 slides at a time because it could be time consuming to do all 15 slides at once.
