This is a great ice breaker activity to use at the beginning of the year or anytime you need to lighten the mood. It is also a great illustration for the importance of paying attention and listening to others!
This activity is similar to an I Have, Who Has game. The first person performs their activity and then the person with the next card performs their activity and so on. I have used this with 5th graders and they love it!
Below is an example of some of the actions:
After somebody STANDS UP AND SPINS AROUND TWO TIMES, then you will HUM THE TUNE TO THE SONG "ROW, ROW, ROW YOUR BOAT."
After somebody HUMS THE TUNE TO THE SONG "ROW, ROW, ROW YOUR BOAT," then you will STAND UP AND DO FIVE JUMPING JACKS.
After somebody STANDS UP AND DOES FIVE JUMPING JACKS, then you will CLAP YOUR HANDS FOUR TIMES.
This is designed for 24 students. It could be modified for more or less students if needed.
Thanks for viewing!
