Online MA in TESOL!
Are you teaching parts of the body? This game ate up 20 minutes, locked the words into their little brains, and had them screaming with laughter.
Draw a large egg shape on a piece of paper, one piece for each student. Give them each a different colour crayon (make them ask for their favourite colour by name). Then instruct them to draw a nose on the face- JUST A NOSE! Then have them all hand their paper to the left. Next, a mouth, then pass again. By now they get the idea. Then eyes, ears, hair. When they are finshed grab all the faces, then show them to the class one at a time. blue nose, orange mouth, red eyes, brown ears, green hair... no two will be alike.
Variation: Instead of a head, draw a torso- t-shirt and shorts. Have them begin by drawing a VERY BIG HEAD; next, arms BUT NO HANDS; then hands; legs but no feet; feet; nose; etc. Let them finish by colouring the shorts, then switch and colour in the t-shirt.
For extra laughs, give each drawing a different name.
