How To Play: This game requires either
a clock with a second hand, or a timer. Kids love to race against
a clock, and this is a very versatile tool. One thing I do is
have the students sit in a circle. We choose a number card, and
the students take turns passing around the number and saying the
name. I usually ask the kids how many times they think we can
go around the circle in 30 seconds. They answer 1 or 2 times.
Then I start the timer and we see if we can make it. You can also
watch a clock hand if you don't have a timer.
Variations: This game is very versatile, and
also great for older kids. They can use basic questions, "What's
your name?" or more complicated questions. For example when
doing the number, the students have to ask the student next to
them, "What number?" then the student they hand the
card to has to answer, "2" before asking the next student,
