Imaginary Toss Game


I LOVED this game when I learned it this summer:

Students are in a circle.  Leader passes an imaginary ball to one person, they pass it to another person, and so on until the ball comes back to the leader.  Ask students if they remember who threw to them and who they threw to.  They must always receive the imaginary ball from the the person who threw it to them originally, and throw it to the same person they threw it to originally.

Once everyone can keep the order going, the teacher adds other types of things to pass around the circle, for example:

A giant bomb!
a tiny feather
a red rose
green slime
a long carrot

This is good for descriptive vocabulary and students can act out how they catch or throw these crazy things.
