      This is a great, quick, game to get kids re-energized and refocused. A variation that I play: when the music plays you pass the items, when the music stops you stop. Then I pull a card that has different instructions written on it. For example it might say, “tennis balls, out.” The people holding the tennis balls are out. It might say “to the left of the ping pong ball, out”. It’s great fun but it does make the game a bit longer. Additionally, it adds a competitive element that may not be best for all groups.

      (Background info: I play this with a group of 7th grade science students and 8th grade math students)
