EFL Game: Action Race

This is a game that the children absolutely love. Using actions like run, jump, clap, run, and so on, the children race from one point to another.

Have the children split into two teams and sit in two rows on the floor with a chair in front of the first person in line. One student from each team stands up beside his/her chair, and when you yell out an action, e.g. “jump!” the children must then jump all the way to the other side of the room and back to their chair. When the children come back and sit they must say “I can jump!” First student to get to their chair wins a point for their team. I like to give an extra point if they say the sentence properly, too. That way you can even out the points, so everybody wins. This is especially important to the younger kids.
