BRIEF OUTLINE: Students have ten seconds to draw a picture and have their teammates guess it.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Blackboard or scratch paper

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Split the class into groups. The first person from each group stands up and goes outside the classroom and receives a sentence. Once they understand the meaning of the sentence, they are brought back into the class.
  2. When you say "Go!", they have ten seconds to draw the picture. For bigger classes, you might provide teams with scratch paper and have them draw from their desks.
  3. The first group to guess the picture receives the points.
  4. Some example sentences include: "Hello kitty is swimming. Doraemon is playing kendo. A gorilla is dancing. Anpanman is running on the moon."

 

VARIATIONS:

  • You can use this warm-up for any grammer point, for example: "Is that a gorilla?"

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • More advanced classes might be able to handle more advanced sentences: "Hello kitty is swimming with a gorilla on her back."

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Class could get very loud when guessing.
