Review: Face Bash!
Divide the class into two teams. Draw a BIG face (with all of the words from the last lesson) for each team. The teacher will say a word and the students (one at a time/team) do their best to throw a soft ball at the face. They must say whichever part that they hit. Get the students to be the teacher. Now for the fun! Add a bruise or stitches to the face, based on where it was hit. By the end, you will have two very bashed-up faces! 10 minutes.
Introduce and drill the new words using your own body parts. You could even draw a person on the board and elicit the words that way. Be sure to use adjectives like big, small, long, short and colours. 15 minutes.
Follow-up with a game of memory. 5-7 minutes
This game is exactly the same as “Simon Says”, but easier to understand (who’s Simon?). Explain to the students that if you don’t say “Teacher Says” before you tell them to do something then they are out. I find the best way to do this is to demonstrate in front of the class (demonstrate a couple of times). Play the game and the last one standing is the winner. A big cheer goes up from everyone! 10 minutes.
Fun Activity: Switch positions
