(TOPIC: BRAIN STRETCHERS)
A WORD ASSOCIATION GAME. YOU WILL NEED A TENNIS BALL, FOOTY OR SOMETHING ELSE TO THROW AROUND.
ALL STUDENTS SIT IN A CIRCLE.
ONE STUDENT STARTS BY SAYING A WORD AND TOSSING THE BALL TO ANOTHER STUDENT.
THE RECEIVER ASSOCIATES ON THIS WORD (SAY A WORD THAT IS SOMEHOW RELATED TO THE WORD GIVEN BY THE STUDENT PRIOR), AND SAYS AN ASSOCIATED WORD AS SHE THROWS THE BALL TO YET ANOTHER STUDENT.
PURPOSE: STRETCHING THE BRAIN, THINKING CREATIVELY ON YOUR FEET AND GETTING ENERGIZED AT THE START OF A DAY.
