big_small = Big groups
This is based on a board game i used to have. It's basically a mixture between Pictionary and Charades.
You can use this game for any vocabulary, it is especially useful for a review lesson.
Firstly, prepare some picture cards, a stopwatch and a dice.
Split the class into at least two groups, and decide who will go first. One person comes to the front of the class and picks a picture card.
Next they roll the dice. Number 1 and 2, mean they must act out the vocab, 2 and 3 mean they must draw the vocab and 5 and 6 mean they can choose drawing or acting.
You can play this for as long or short a time as you wish, and keep scores with one of the Genki-English score board ideas.
