Lesson Plan

Pick seven children to be it, and ask them to stand at the front of the room. Have the remaining students sit at their desks with their heads down and one thumb up. Each student who is it very quietly and carefully touches the thumb of one seated student. When a student's thumb is touched (no peeking!), he or she makes a fist, hiding the thumb. When seven thumbs have been touched, all the students who are it return to the front of the room, and the teacher calls, "seven up!" The seven students whose thumbs are down get one chance each to guess who tapped their thumb. Any student who guesses correctly replaces the student who touched him or her as it . Then the game starts over.
