This is a great warmer activity and also a funny way of dividing the class into two or three groups.
Each student is given a card that tells them which line they are in, where exactly in the line and what they are doing and what their neighbors are doing. They have to find their place by observing their neighbors. The students all start their activities, and stand next to their neighbor once they've found him/her.
Follow up: Once students have found their places, you can get them to strike up a conversation with one of their neighbors while staying in their character, or perhaps enact improv scenes with 3-6 people in one line, and the other students being the audience.
