BRIEF OUTLINE:  Students answer questions about what other students are doing.



  • StudentExamples cards: You'll need to adjust the size of the images for your own needs.



  1. Ask for six outgoing student volunteers and bring them to the front of the classroom. Give each one of them a picture card and tell them to act out their picture.
  2. Then, ask the class questions about what the six students are doing: What is Student A doing? Is Student B playing a PSP?
  3. Finally, have the students who are sitting write in their notebooks about what the students holding the cards are doing.
  4. Rotate cards and students so that everyone has a chance to write in their notebooks.



      • You might attach easy but fake name tags to their chests to make things more interesting: baka, poochi, yasui, etc.
