Story Chain

Arrange the class in a circle on the floor. Pick one student to start a story with one or two sentences. Students continue around the circle with each person adding another sentence or two to the story. You can assign a specific topic for the story or you can let the students decide. To make it more challenging, have the first person begin the story with a word starting with "A" and have the next student start the next sentence with "B" and so on.
