Make cards with the number one on them. Give each student 5 cards each to start with. In pairs the children say "hello," then ask each other, "how old are you?" One card represents one year, so if you have 5 cards, you are 5 years old etc.. Then the kids do rock, paper, scissors, the loser gives the winner one card. At the end of the game the oldest person is the winner. The kids really get a kick out of hearing their teacher say, "I'm 2 years old"!!!
( Also have a look at the "namecard game" )
