This is a great idea for body motion and spatial awareness that can be done with music. Simply hold up one of the stick figures and the students must imitate the pose of the stick figure. It’s even more fun if you tell them that it’s part of the rules that they don’t talk or laugh (they can’t not laugh!). Use an ambient background piece like “Hymn of Hope” (Secret Garden) or something with an ABA form. During a specific section they have to be statues, and during another section they have to do some other action. Change the stick figure pose every few measures, or with the musical line.
These specific images I got from “Miss G”, who acquired them from an Orff workshop. She has given me permission to use them and to share them with you.
Ps. Here is another set of stick figure statues in different positions, also submitted by Miss G. In this set there are only 12. Stick Figure Statues 2
