  • Various body part cards. (Foot, knee, elbow, head...)


  • Give each student a body part card. They should not tell anyone whats on their card. This card is a secret.
  • Students find a partner and play rock, paper, scissors.
  • The winner tells the loser, "Touch your _____." (according to their card) The loser must touch the body part and say its name in English. For example, Winner: "Touch your head" Loser: (touches head) "head"
  • The winner must say, "Yes" if the loser gets the correct body part. "No" if the loser gets the body part wrong.
  • Students then switch cards and find a new partner.


  • Students who get the body part wrong can have 3 chances. If they are wrong 3 times. They must sit down. Reward the students left standing at the end.
  • Use other vocabulary on the cards if needed. (Clothes, actions, classroom items...)


  • Walk around and make sure students are speaking English and touching the correct body parts.
