Ask a few students to step out of the classroom.
Tell the students in the classroom a simple, step by step story. Like the 3 wishes joke maybe.
Ask the students to come back in the class.
The rest of the class must retell the story/joke to the students that didn’t hear it.
Option: Give the students outside a story to read. When finished – they can reverse roles and tell the story they read to the class.
Use our Best Funny Stories – they really work for this activity!
