The Asynchronous Counting Game

Students sit in a circle facing outwards with the lights off. Students are to then count up to the same number as the amount of participants asynchronously and randomly. If a number is said by more than one student at the same time than the students are to start over.

Benefits:

  • Encourages concentration/ focus
  • Teambuilding
  • Calming

Limitations:

  • Some participants might need brighter lighting to feel comfortable

Applications:

  • When moving from a high energy activity to a low energy activity

Adaptations:

  • Lights on
  • Number can change depending on the age of participants
  • Have students count as high as they can
  • Instead of numbers, use the alphabet
