Divide the class into 2 , 3 or 4 groups.
Have at least 6 in each group.
Number the students in each group from one to six.
Get each member of the first group to leave the room except for number one.
The other groups stay in the room.
They must stay silent.
You then give number one an action to mime.
You then call number 2 into the room and number one mimes to number 2.
They do not talk.
Number 3 then comes into the room and number 2 mimes exactly what he/she saw to number 3.
Number 3 does the mime for number four and so on.
When number 6 comes into the room he / she has to guess what the original mime was.
Then the other groups do the same.
Here are some suggestions for mimes:
1. Riding a horse
3. Washing dishes
4. Eating hot food
5. Counting money
6. Telling someone you love them
7. Eating spaghetti
9. Playing tug of war
10. Washing your dog
11. Ballet dancing
12. Moon walk
13. Playing basketball
14. Singing opera
15. Walking in the desert
16. Playing tennis
17. Making pancakes
18. Opening a present that you do not like.
The other groups watch how the mime changes with each person. This is a fun game and helps with observation skills.
