Hello Wall (all grades)
Students will identify cardinal directions around them.
Materials and Preparation:
- Students or teachers pick a "caller." The
caller begins the game by saying "Hello Wall,
1, 2, 3, ...., 10, and then calls out any cardinal
- While the caller is calling out numbers
the rest of the class goes to a wall of their choice.
They may not be at a corner and must be at a wall by
- If the caller calls West, all students standing
at the wall to the West are "out" and head
to their seats.
- Play repeats until only a few students
are left and a new rule goes into play that states
that the students must be at different walls. The last
player left is the winner and can be the next caller
or choose a caller.
Depending on age group or ability you may want to label
at least one of the cardinal directions in your room.
This game goes by very quickly, so the students that
get "out" are not idle for long!
