Pictionary with a large class
I teach in China and I have 50 students in my classes. I often find games do not work because of the number of students. This is the most popular game I have found so far, and every student wants to get involved.
Divide the class into two teams . Give each team member a number. Call out a number and the two students from each team come to the board. Tell them whether you want them to DRAW or SPELL. Then give them the word. The first to complete the task gets a point for their team. Team members are allowed to help but can not come up to the board.
If you choose random numbers, everyone is on tenterhooks as to who is next. It's useful to review recently learned vocab.
