Elementary Activities: Line Up!

by Deborah Pace Rowley
After a recent extended family dinner, I gathered all the older cousins in the living room and to play Line Up! My students love to play this game using States and Capitals, Word Wall Words, and anything we have learned in a sequence. All you need to do is announce how the kids need to line up and start a timer. It was fun to watch them work together and scramble to beat their previous time. I even learned some things I didn’t know about my nieces and nephews. Below are the different lines that we created. See how many you can think up on your own.  

Line up alphabetically by first names
Line up alphabetically by middle names
Line up from shortest to tallest
Line up from smallest feet to biggest feet
Line up chronologically by your birth dates
Line up by who has the most money (Not recommended for adults!)
Line up according to who played video games the longest and the shortest amount of time last week
Line up according to who read the most and the least last week

**No, I didn’t actually try this next one.
Line up in order from the most favorite to the least favorite grandchild

That line wouldn’t have worked anyway. There would have been a massive dog pile as all the kids tried to get into the favorite grandchild position!
