Teach 4-6 statue poses with names. Make the statues go with the theme- they can be physical objects, buildings, characters, etc. (Examples: for an ocean theme you could choose crab, rock, shark, and seaweed or for a castle theme you could choose castle, knight, jester, and dragon). Teach one and have everyone try it. Teach the second, have everyone try it then review the two statues a few times. Keep layering another one on and reviewing the old ones until they know them all. Practice how quickly they can do them (and be doing them yourself).
Then tell them you’re going to try to trick them. They should do the pose you are SAYING, not the one you are DOING. Tell them to move fast!
Tell them the mistakes don’t matter and we can just laugh if we get it wrong.
This game is great for getting up and using some energy while also focusing, paying attention, and listening intently.
