11 Adapt the Game "Fastest Turkey" for Zoom or In-person
Adapt for Zoom: invite one child to run back and forth in front of their device camera while you sing the song. The rest of the class counts how many times they saw the "turkey."
Adapt for in-person: Go outside and play the chase game as a race game. Some teachers have been allowed to use a pool noodle to "tag" kids with. If you have enough noodles so students do not have to share, you could try the game as a chase game.
