Rhythm Circle

Have your students do rhythm circles in small groups. To do this, one person begins by doing some kind of movement, such as a jump or a clap. The next person repeats the movement and then adds on his own movement. This continues around the circle until there is only one person left. When students can't remember the previous movements, they sit out.
