BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a simple warm up game for revising numbers. They have to try to guess the number from within a set range. The less gueses the more the points.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Chalkboard and possibly a set of small number flash cards

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After revising the numbers and teaching the words "higher" and "lower," divide up to 2 teams. This activity can be played with more teams but I've had great success with boys versus girls. Assign points to make it more interesting: 1~2 guesses = 10pts, 3~4 guesses = 8pts, 5 guesses = 5pts, etc.
  2. Then, the ALT/JTE chooses a number and t
    he first team guesses a number. Depending on the chosen number, the ALT/JTE says 'higher' or 'lower'.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Only allow 10 guesses.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • For lower-level classes, it is a good idea to write the guesses on the chalkboard, or have the students write them.
