You know what it is…
Divide everyone into small groups of four to six. Call out the name of an object and all the groups have to make the shape of that object out of their own bodies, joining together in different ways while you count down slowly from ten to zero. Usually every group will find a different way of forming the object. Examples could be: a car, a fried breakfast, a clock, a washing machine, a fire. Students must also make the sound that the object makes
Group stands outside a designated performance space. One person runs into the space, forms her body into a statue and announces what she is, as in "I'm a tree. "Instantly the next person runs on and forms something else in the same picture. "I'm a bench under the tree.” The next person further adds to the picture. "I'm a bum on the bench." "I'm a dog peeing on the tree." "I'm the newspaper the bum is sleeping under.“ Etc., until the whole group is part of the picture. Start again. And again. Etc. Coach this to go very, very fast.
