This is a game I used to play at Brownies!
Teach the class stationary vocab.
Split the class into groups of about six people. Get each group to place ten items found in the classroom on their desks, i.e pencil, ruler, eraser, chalk, notebook etc. Choose who will go first; this person has ten seconds to look at the items and memorise what is there. Then they must turn away while the rest of the team remove one item.
The person turns back around and guesses what is missing, in English, and gets a point if they are correct.
It can be advanced by having more items, taking away more than one item at a time or introducing more vocabulary i.e "what is missing?"- "the red pencil" etc.
