Heads Down, thumbs up!

This game is also known as 7 up.

Select 4-5 students and give them a flashcard/picture.

All other students put their heads down and one thumb up. The other students go around the classroom and gently squeeze one student’s thumb. They return to the front of the class.

The student’s whose thumbs were squeezed stand up and guess who did it by stating the vocabulary on the flashcard “Did a “bear” squeeze me?”.  If they guess correctly, they get a flashcard and can go to the front.

A fun game!
