Time: 5 to 10 minutes.
It's a funny warmer for those days when students seem a bit 'out-of-sync'. It's somewhat like Fizz, Boing, Bounce.
Have students sit in a circle, and choose one person to start the game. Tell students to face the student on their left and say “zip” one at a time, going around the circle clockwise as fast as possible. As they say “zip,” they have to keep their teeth completely covered with their lips (no smiling)! Warn the group that if students accidentally show any teeth, they’ll be out.
