This can be used to teach `places around town` or `weekend plans`.... works well with grade 5 and 6, my kids love it!
- Make 2-4 teams, and make 2-4 lines
- In the gym, spread out cards all along the four walls.
- Have pieces of paper with the names of each card in a hat. ( or try the mini cards)
- The first person on each team selects a card out of the hat, then turns to the person next to them and does the conversation.
- "Where are you going?" "I'm going to the......"
- Teacher says go and the students race to the card.
- the first student there sits down by the card, and the other does it again.
- Repeat until one team has everybody sitting down.
