1. Ask 6 students to stand in front of the classroom. Put one chair behind the each kid.
2. Give everyone a word card .
3. The Teacher says one word, the kid who hold this word card quickly sits down. The kids who stand at either side of this kid quickly turn around to face each other and say out the word that is on their opponent's card. For example: A kid holds the 'dog' card, B kid holds the 'cat' card, C kid holds the 'bee' card and they stand in a row. If the teacher says: 'cat', the kid who holds the 'cat' card sits down, kids A & C quickly turn around to face each other, A kid will say out the word 'bee' that the C kid is holding. C kid will say out the word 'dog' that the A kid is holding.
See who is the faster one, then he/she is the winner.
