Drama Awareness Game |Secret Leader

Secret Leader encourages students to work as a team and think strategically, even at a very young age!

COVID-19 Update!
If you don’t have enough space to have the children sitting two metres apart in a circle, you can sit them at a safe distance around the room without affecting the game.


  • Ask the students to sit in a circle.
  • Select one student to leave the room as a detective.
  • Select one of the remaining students to be the leader.
  • The leader must repeat an action and the group copy.
  • The detective returns to the room and has to guess who is leading the action.

Top tip: Encourage the students not to look at the leader. If everyone is following a person across from them, they should all being doing the same action without looking at the leader.

Mark a space to keep your students socially distant (without damaging your floor)
