This project discussed the causes of low classroom energy from two aspects, one was the students' problems. Students were insufficient in learning motivation was a foremost problem, including intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation. Because students hardly had a clear learning goal or desire on the way of education, it would affect students' learning interest and vitality. In addition, students' learning anxiety was another factor. For example, students would feel dysphoric in learning, which could reduce their engagement during learning. The other one is the teachers themselves. This project would start with the instruction enthusiasm of the teacher. If the teacher was not enthusiastic, the whole class atmosphere would become depressed and the students' mood would be affected. At the same time, teachers needed to improve teaching strategies. With the development of the times, teaching methods needed to be updated to adapt to society. Innovative teaching methods could attract students' attention and enhance the classroom atmosphere. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was that helped teachers improve the dynamic atmosphere in the classroom. This project also contained a practical guidebook about classroom activities for improving high-energy classes. This guidebook included three parts: learn something new; develop the imagination; break out of the class. Each part was matched with different classroom activities according to the different progress of the courses.
