Stop! And, go! And, Jump! This is a great activity that gets you up, moving, and thinking quick. Play it before distance learning starts to gather energy and focus. Play it when everyone is done for the day and needs to release some energy. Feel free to create your own additional commands.
I learned Stop and Go and Jump from Lynn Hoare who co-founder Creative Action in Austin, TX. You can see a longer description of the activity in the link below from the Drama-Based Instruction website created by Drama for Schools at The University of Texas at Austin
