To be creative

Materials Needed

Ideas written down for students to perform


First, you will write down different ideas.

Then, you will have two students come up and perform the skit that you chose for them. The two students would do the same thing. The other students will guess what the two students are doing.

Here are some ideas for students to do:

1. Playing basketball

2. Cheerleaders

3. Reading a book

4. Writing a book

5. Ice Skating

6. Roller Skating

7. Getting dressed

8. Doing the dishes (One student could wash the dishes, and the other one could dry the dishes.)

9. Talking on the phone

10. Playing with a dog (One student could be the dog and the other one could be the owner.)

There are different ideas that you could come up with for students to perform on the spur of the moment.

The point of this exercise is to have the students come up with something immediately after you have given them their idea.


You can grade the students on their creativity and how well they performed their act.
