Here is one that came from a conversation I had with a kid. I told
him I had a girlfriend, and he asked me how I picked her up. Then
he started me to teach him pick up lines in English (a 12 year old by the
way). The next day we did this lesson in class.
1. Give every kid a piece of paper and a pencil.
2. Tell them you are going to play a Dating game.
3. The rules are quite simple, the boys have to ask the girls for their phone numbers, and vice versa. Whoever gets the most numbers after a certain amount of time is the winner.
You can make many additions to the conversation, such as What's Your Name? , Where do you Live? and What's your phone number? You can also allow them to refuse to give the number if the other person is not 'smooth' enough with their delivery.
