Rhythm Circle

Have students arrange themselves in one large circle or do this as a small group / center activity. One student (or the teacher) starts with a movement such as a hand-clap, hop, twist, etc. and the next person has to repeat the previous movement and add a new one. Players are eliminated from the game when they fail to correctly reproduce the previous sequence of movements. This continues around the circle until there is one person remaining, who is declared the winner.
