  1. Form a circle with the entire group, facing the center. Make sure the group is clear about what an adverb is. It’s “how” something is done.
  2. Select one person to be ‘it’. That person leaves the room while the rest select a single adjective. This can be randomly made up or selected from a jar or hat. Example adjectives might be “Slowly”, “Nervously” or “Sleepily.”
  3. Once all participants understand the adjective, the person who is ‘it’ is invited back into the room and stands in the center of the circle.
  4. One by one, the person who is ‘it’ points to a person in the circle and asks them to do an activity. Examples might be putting on a jacket or reading a book.
  5. The chosen participant mimes this activity in the manner that the adjective describes. For example, the book will be read ‘slowly’ or the jacket will be put on ‘nervously.’
  6. This continues until the person who is it can guess the adjective.
