Switch game: concentration and coordination

In this activity children copy the teacher’s sequence of four actions tapping different parts of the body and keeping a steady rhythm. To make the activity more challenging the teacher says “switch”, so that children drop out and join back in but one step behind. They will have to use their memory to recall the sequence and this makes them concentrate even more and also helps their coordination.


In this film Artis Specialist and Mentor Leader Stuart Barter (Chime) demonstrates this activity working with children from St Paul with St Luke Primary School in East London.
