A classic cumulative memory game which can be played online

Sit in a circle. The first person says “I went to the supermarket and I bought…” and they name an object beginning with ‘A’, for example ‘apple’. In this version they should also add a movement to go with the word, e.g. biting the apple.

The person next to them says “I went to the supermarket and I bought an apple and…” They should choose an object beginning with ‘B’ and a movement to go with it. The game continues around the circle with each person adding an object and movement and trying to remember all the preceding objects and movements. Making the movements may help students to remember all the objects, Can they get to ‘Z’?!
