This is a very simple, yet effective drama warm-up that sets a positive tone for the day’s activities.
Have all players scatter about in the playing space. One student calls out an activity for everyone to start miming, the rest of the group members shout out “Yes, lets!” and then they start doing the activity.
For instance, if someone calls out “Let’s start jogging in place!” the group responds with “Yes, lets!” and everyone starts jogging in place until someone calls out a new activity.
Encourage players to only offer one suggestion until they sense that everyone else has had a chance to play. As an alternative, play in a circle, allowing each student a ‘turn.’
