• Discuss the meaning of an ensemble.
o What are other examples of ensemble?
o How do they work together and what goals do they achieve?
Stand in a circle facing each other.
2 Warm Up/Initial Activity
• Teacher will transition the students to make a perfect standing circle of the stage floor.
• One by one, the ball will be passed around the room and the student will say their name and something unique about themselves.
o If the unique fact applies to someone else in the group, that person can raise their hand and say that they have the same unique fact.
o The person must be very specific about their fact so as to distinguish themselves from the group.
• After each person has gone, the ball will be passed around the circle again and each student must say their name and their fact, again.
• The students must then find someone in the group, say their name and walk, roll or underhand throw the ball to the student.
• Once the student has fulfilled the games objective they may sit down.
o You can also see if anyone in the group knows every single student’s name (CHALLENGE)!
Group Yourself By…
• Teacher has the students move around the space and at random will call out a category.
• Students are responsible for creating groups based on the category the teacher says.
▪ Hair color
▪ Eye Color
▪ Shoe Color
▪ Number of siblings
▪ Neighborhood they live in
▪ Favorite food
• Some of the groups will be large, small and everything in between – it is okay for people to be by themselves.
Form a group with others that fit the category being called out.
