Zombie Janken

A fun, fairly low prep game to get kids familiar with actions and verbs you’ve introduced. Can be a little chaotic, but works fine in classrooms, even with a lot of kids. Ties in with Halloween activities.

Jump to it!

  1. Place plastic cards of colors/shapes around the room.
  2. The teacher demonstrates how to play the game by saying, "When I say, 'Clap at red,' you go to red, and clap." and various phrases using a mixture of colors/numbers and actions.

You may also say "Clap to red," in which case the students clap on their way to something red.

 

*Build up to color+shape+action. For example, let the children try finding the colors first. Next, add shapes. Finally, ask them to do all three: "Eat a pizza at a blue star."
