How to Play
- Players line up standing 6 feet apart from one another.
- Players will be doing a lot of moving, but they must stay in their spot.
- The leader says, "I have been on a many different adventures recently, but I forgot my camera on every one! I need you to help me recreate some of my favorite moments so I can have some photos. I am going to describe some of my memories, and I need you to try and recreate them in 30 seconds using only your body and your imagination,"
- The player who demonstrates moves closest to the leader's memory wins! All other players will do five star jumps.
Check for Understanding
- What are players using to recreate the memories?
- What happens if players are unsuccessful?
- The leader should ensure his or her memories have clear activities students can complete.
