Easy peasy and great fun! “Pick” a volunteer (once the class sees what the idea is they are usually begging to come forward!) and get them to stand with their back to the board.
Write a word on the board that the pupils have learnt recently, or something to present the theme of today’s lesson.
The rest of the class must then explain the word and the volunteer must guess what is written “behind his back”.
To start with, the rest of the class put up their hands politely, but they’re soon yelling out their hints, which can make it even harder for our helpful volunteer!
I was amazed by how well even low level groups could define their vocabulary. They also enjoyed having the volunteer write the word behind my back!
