Drama Game: BALL COUNT

BALL COUNT is not technically a drama game but it's a fun team building game to get groups up and moving and working together. It is also fun to try to beat class records.

​How to play ball count



  • This is a whole class game and can be played with small or large groups. It can be played in a circle or with students spread out across the room.


How to play this game:

  • You will need a soft ball to play.

  • In small groups or as the entire class, students must keep the ball in the air for as long as possible.

  • Each time the ball is bounced back into the air, the whole group must count out 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.

  • Aim for a target number and try to beat old class records.


  • The same person can only hit the ball up once in a row.

  • The ball is not to touch the ground or walls at all.
