This LOW to NO PREP game can either be played as a whole class activity with 2 teams or in pairs or groups of 3. It contains 18 words from the vocabulary list. Also included is a page of calling cards, making it easier to keep track of the words that you have already called out. This game can be played without printing these out.
Whole class (additional materials needed—2 flyswatters):
Divide class into 2 teams. Project the picture page onto a Smartboard or other surface. Have one student from each team approach the board. Give each one a flyswatter. Call out the English translation of a word. The first student to slap the French word with the flyswatter wins the point. A set of calling cards is included to easily keep track of which words have already been called.
Pair activity (or group of 3):
Print out copies of the word page. Hand out one word page per group. Students use the eraser end of a pencil or a capped pen to tap the words as they are called out. Have each pair/group keep track of their own points. As long as students do not write on these sheets, they can easily be reused.
