EXAGGERATION CIRCLE is a silly warm up drama game where students practice exaggerated gestures.

​How to play exaggeration circle



  • This is a whole class circle drama game and can be played with small or large groups.


How to play this drama game:

  • Students stand in a circle and the teacher explains that the aim of this game is to create exaggerated gestures.

  • The teacher starts the game by doing a simple gesture. The next student in the circle must make the gesture a little more exaggerated.

  • Students continue around the circle, making the gesture more and more exaggerated until it is completely over the top.

  • Students should focus on exaggerating the gesture, not changing it completely!


  • Add a sound to the gesture.
