Inspired by: Small Talk

Estimated time: 20 to 30 minutes

I originally had all these Race and Speak games posted together but it was getting a bit much.

Put the students into groups after doing the demonstration and have them pick their order. Groups can be done as rows or 4 person lunch groups. Whatever works.
Show the student the question and in their group they think of the answer and then send one student to a teacher with the answer. If it is correct they pick one of the characters on the screen and get points. Points generally range from 1 to 4 and -3.
After each team has gotten points or a time limit is reached you reveal the answer. Practice it as a class and move onto the next question. A new group member should come with an answer.

I generally do these games with a tablet connected to the projector. This way both teachers check answers and help students and the kids can tap the screen and manage the points on the board themselves.

Click on the question to see the hint picture, click on the question again to see the answer and click on the answer to go to the next slide.

About half way through the questions are Small Talk Slides. This is a 1 minute short conversation the students have in pairs after the teachers do a demonstration. Optionally you can move this to the end after the students are no longer in groups or cut it completely if you don't do free talk activities that much in your classes.

The follow up writing is meant to be done solo and I usually give stickers for students that complete a certain amount.
