Pop up! - Set the timer for 60 seconds, around the room you want to have at least 10 pop-ups, a pop-up is when a person pops up out of their seat and states something he or she has learned, and sits back down. If the group can meet the goal of how many pop-ups you set you can let them earn an extra minute on their next break.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1 - In this game, participants stand up and the presenter has them do five different movements in descending order. For example: do 5 jumping jacks, hop on one foot 4 times, touch your toes 3 times, spin in a circle 2 times, give 1 high five.
My Stretch Toss - Have all participants stand and stretch, then toss a softball to someone. That participant will share one thing they have learned from the training, and then toss the ball to someone else. Then they sit down. You can set the timer for 60 seconds.
