BRIEF
OUTLINE: Students pass around cards while saying "I'll give you ~."  Those left holding the cards when the music stops are out!

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Prepare some small cards with known nouns for students to pass around. Roughly 5cm x 5cm is a good size. Prepare enough cards for about half the class.
  • CD player.
  • CD of your choice.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Handout cards randomly to about half the class, only 1 to each student. Spread the cards out across the classs.
  2. Start up a song of your choice.
  3. Students with cards stand up, walk to a student sitting down and say "I'll give you a ~". Then they sit down. The student with the card stands up and does the same.

  4. Students continue passing cards in this way.
  5. After about 3 minutes or when the song ends, the students without cards are the winners!

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Make sure the students are actually practicing the target language and not just passing the cards.
