Time: 15 minutes+

How to Play: 

  • Pair up! Players stand 6 feet away from each other. 
  • Designate a student to be “Spark Leader” or facilitate it yourself. Players must follow the Spark Leader's movements. 
  • When the leader says “SPARK,” put both hands straight up before your partner.
  • Whoever completes the motion first is the winner! Give your partner a wi-fi (wireless high five or air five) and find a new partner.

Game tip:

Try different motions when the Spark Leader says “SPARK,” like balancing on one foot or doing jumping jacks. Whoever completes the motion first is the winner! 

Check for understanding:

When can I sit down? What do you do after you sit down?
