Geography and PE Game
idea contributed by Alastair Mitchell-Baker

Alastair writes: 'A game I have used with Year 1 pupils to try to reinforce their geographical vocabulary and their understanding of some physical geography terms: The game is based on the old party favourite "The Captain's coming" Pupils mime actions to verbal prompts as previously demonstrated by the teacher:

  • Rushing river - pupils run around the room (all in the same direction!) with arms outstretched.
  • Volcano - children jump up in the air and make exploding noise.
  • Mountain - children stand on tiptoe with hands forming a triangle shape above their heads
  • Desert - children crawl along the floor
  • Sea - children form a line and run forwards and backwards with arms stretched downwards imitating the actions of waves
  • Earthquake - children shake their whole body and drop to the floor
  • Tornado - children hold arms up and spin around on the spot
  • Forest - pupils join into groups of five and stand with arms outstretched pretending to be trees

None of this is exactly rocket science but my class enjoyed it and it could easily be extended or you could hold up pictures of the relevant scenes instead of calling out the words. Hope someone, somewhere finds this useful!'
