So far, in this column, we have brought you educative games for children. It is fitting that we end this series with a list of games for teachers. The staffroom is not just a place to plan, discuss, and grade. It should also be a place for FUN. As a Teachers’ Day special we bring you a set of games, each with the simple objective of having fun together.
Movement and body based games
- All teachers are blindfolded (or they simply agree to keep their eyes closed.) Divide yourselves into groups of five or six. Each group will be given a rope and the members in the group have to work together to make a rectangle (ensure that each team has more than four members). Then you can try making a circle. Whichever team makes the best rectangle or circle wins. Add rules like no talking, no touching each other, no giggling, or no instructions.
