This game is a wonderful warm up for practising prepositions while incorporating already learned vocabulary, though it takes some preparation, either before class or when the children are told to shut their eyes. I write on little slips of paper and hide them around the classroom.
One leads to another. example: ' Look under the waste bin', where the children find a slip that says,'on the teacher's desk' where they find a slip with,' beside the restroom door' or,' in front of the computer'. Inevitably the children read these instructions outloud. If they have difficulty understanding the directions I have them ask me," How do you say ' in front of the computer' in Italian?". At the end of the hunt I write a note saying 'Congratulations, You Win!!!' They are crazy for this game.
