For example, you could play “Pass the Chicken”:
Students stand about an arm’s length apart in a circle, with one person standing in the center.
Give the person in the center a task (each student can receive a new category). Their goal is to respond to the task before the students in the circle pass a rubber chicken (or beach ball, beanbag, or other soft object) around the circle three times.
Repeat until each student has been in the circle.
