Link Up!


Tip: Link Up!

How do I do it?
Make a circle. A volunteer says “My name is ____ and I know ____ about (teacher assigned topic)." A student who  knows the same thing links arms with that person and says, “I know (the previous person’s fact) and (another fact)”.  The goal is to get the entire group linked up.  If necessary, unlink up to get everyone linked again.  The last person must make a statement that links them to the first person to complete the game. Topics can be about anything! (The Water Cycle, the Civil War, Nutrition, Classroom Rules, etc.)
