Warm Up Fuzzy Ducky


Silly concentration game and great warm-up. All players in a circle. We will count numbers clockwise, except that: any number that is a multiple of 3, or contains a 3 (like 13) becomes Fuzzy any number that is a multiple of 7 or contains a 7 (like 17) becomes Ducky any number that is a multiple of 3 and 7 (like 21) or contains both 3 and 7 (like 73 and 37) becomes Fuzzy Ducky) Any player that ends up muttering Duzzy Fucky is put in front of the Firing Squad

*Discuss importance of activity as it pertains to theatre and to cooperation*


Samurai This is an excellent physical warm up. All players in a circle. One player is the Samurai - she starts by lifting her Katana (sword), making a Japanese- sounding grunt. She keeps her sword up in the air, and her 2 neighbors "slaughter" her, by swinging their swords into her sides, again grunting enthusiastically and in pseudo-japanese. When the neighbors retract their swords, the Samurai

lowers her sword; while doing this she makes eye contact with another player, when then becomes Samurai, and everything starts all over again. Start slowly, and then increase the tempo.

Part 2 Body: ( 20-25 )min: Pirate The object of this game is for the person in the centre of the circle who will be blindfolded to protect their treasure and the people in the surrounding circle will try to get the key to the treasure chest away from the pirate in the centre of the circle. Step 1: Get everyone in a large circle and pick someone to be the blindfolded pirate. Step 2: Give the pirate their set of keys that they have to guard. Step 3: The people that are part of the circle can try to get the keys by quietly coming to get them. If the pirate touches you then you're out of the game until the next round. The person that sucessfully gets the keys will be the pirate for the next round since they will now be guarding their treasure. Emotional Mirror
*First do the regular mirror game where students move into partners with one student being the leader and the other the follower. The leader begin moving and the follower follows the leaders movements as they're done. Players in pairs, facing each other. One starts talking in gibberish, with a specific emotion (angry, happy, in love, you name it). The other instantly copies the emotion of the first player, and speaks in his own gibberish. No need to try and copy the other players gibberish, and both players keep talking, no pauzing allowed. After about 10 seconds, the second player changes emotion, and the first one immediately follows her.

(Discuss purpose of game with the students) Part 3 Close: ( 5-10 )min: Musical Relaxation *Play a melodic song from my meditation CD or find one that is suitable for the students to listen to for relaxation. -Ask them to picture the musical melody and visualize the music *How did this exercise help?* Homework: Link to future lessons: *This lesson could link to many other cooperation lessons as well as other character building lessons. This lesson could be used to help prepare a class to work together better as well as teach them basic stress relief techniques.
