This is a nice activity to get your students moving and it works best with young learners. As a matter of fact, you can adapt this activity and turn it into a different strategy to change the students` seating arrangement.
Grammar point: any
Skills: listening and speaking
Material needed: none
Write “Change places if...” on the board.Get students to stand up and place chairs in circle.Take away one chair. Demonstrate game, using a desired structure e.g.” Change places if you like eating bananas”. Students who like eating bananas have to move to a different seat.The student who remains standing must think of a new sentence using the structure being taught or reviewed e.g “Change places if you like playing handball” and students who like playing handball have to change seats.
* Variation: You can do the activity just to change the seating arrangement for another activity to come. In this case, be in charge of saying all the sentences and don’t take away any chairs.
