ULEAD JR/CLASSIC ACTIVITY
Emotion, Action, Animal
Creativity, Engagement, Joy
Pick a song to play for a dance party! Everyone has a card. Teach the signals: Each person looks at their card and combines the Emotion, Animal, and Action in their head. When someone is ready, they shout out, “Let’s do the angry chicken slide!” which they start acting out (dancing) and the music comes on. The entire group shouts, “Yes, Let’s!” and begins emulating the dancer. As facilitator, you let this go on for 10 seconds then stop the music. Wait until the next person shouts out their dance move and begins dancing, then the process repeats.
Person 1: “Let’s do the Grateful Dog Clap!” Entire Group shouts, “Yes, Lets!”
