How to Play

Stand Up Sit Down can be played while students are at their desk or all together in front of the board. You will read the statement on the slide. Students will stand up when the statement applies to them or they agree. They will stay standing until you say “sit down.” The students will remain seated if the statement doesn’t apply to them. For example: You will read the slide "Stand up if you think your teacher is funny.” All the students who think their teacher is funny will stand. The students that do not think their teacher is funny will remain seated. After a few seconds of standing, you will say “sit down” and then read the next statement. Keep playing until you have done all the slides!
