Say the first thing you imagine when I say e.g. Sunday (students continue) When the „line“ ends, it comes backward - students have to remember what they have said OR: I say„Sunday“ and the next person has to think of a word which begins with the second letter of the pronounced word: Ugly > giraffe > Important … 1. Associations
2. Who am I ?
One of you is going to imagine he/she is… A kind of fruit An animal A famous person Has some kind of job Each person takes turns to ask the one person questions to figure out who or what he/she is Only yes or no answers can be asked
A person thinks of a category, such as MOVIES. Everyone must take a turn thinking of some kind of movies: a comedy, drama, sci-fi… If someone takes too long to give an answer (the leader should count to five) then that person is out and a new category begins.
