Up, Down, Stop, Go

Have students stand up either by their seats or spread around the room/play area. Call out the commands “up”, “down”, “stop”, or “go” one at a time. For the first few minutes, watch the group and stop when students do the wrong movement and prompt those students to complete the designated task (jumping jacks, etc.). After the first few minutes, call out the commands without stopping for those who make a mistake. They can just quickly do the task and get back in the game.
