Harder Better Faster Stronger

A great song for teaching comparatives. Also, just for playing a Lastonestanding game. See some fun variations below! Here are some cards that can be used.

This is a pretty cool version to get students interested. Maybe let them try this?!

Daft punk stronger faster cards.doc
Use these Last one standing cards to play a prepared game of Lastonestanding! See more Lastonestanding in our videos or resources. Basically, give each student a card (or they can make their own!). When they hear their word they stand up, when they hear it again, they sit down. Continue 'til the end of the song. Students standing win, the group with the most standing also wins!

This teacher at a Korean summer camp wins hands down for creativity. See how his students did this!

Just did this with my 6th graders for chapter ten...they LOVED it! It also contains some magical property that transformed my co-teacher into a 6th grader himself and he LOVED it! They also really dig the video of the middle school students!!

ditto! Did this with my Grade 1 h.s. after-school class. and they loved it. The last ones standing got candy :)
I started to laugh out loud when it got faster towards the end!

I've got a Cabaret coming up in a few weeks and I know what I am doing for this with my students. Thanks for sharing.

Here is my contribution for the Harder Better Faster Stronger' activity. I hope you enjoy this.

I love the "outdoor" idea. It's always fascinating to see how the students keep up with the song as it gets "harder" and "faster".

Great stuff - I just wish the camera had been a little closer but I know how that is - never easy to get this all together perfectly....

Much better!

Thanks for the reupload and inspiration. Maybe we can have a challenge this next school year - who can make the #1 Harder Better Faster Stronger student vid?

How can i download these?  I want to use the first one in a classroom with no internet.  Any suggestions?

Comment by ddeubel on September 6, 2011 at 3:32pm



I can't be 100% sure because things often get deleted on youtube (why I try to put the actual video up here - so they don't disappear for teachers). Also, I get a lot of videos through other means. But try youtube and use keepvid to download. Download as an mp4 and play using a gom player. 


Ellen has a great keepvid tutorial here   Get the Gom player on our software page. It's the one I most highly recommend as the most reliable video player for your computer. Should work for you. 


Also, in our mediafire resources - these videos can often be found. try that too - available to supporters
