The "chain" part of the chain drill is that what one student says leads to an answer from another student, and so on around the room.
Each student has a sheet of paper that says what they HEAR (from another student), how they RESPOND (to that student) and what they ASK (to the next student). Doing that, the questions and answers bounce all over the room, and you time how fast they can get through it. I like to do it twice on one day and twice the day after to see if they can get faster. I also like to have competitions between sections (ex: Period 1 versus period 5) to see who can do it faster.
This activity practices:
-countries & cities
-prepositions with countries & cities
-the expression "Où est....?"
I love it because:
-students practice really rapidly saying the sentences (it's a timed activity), and it gets them memorized fast!
-students like the competition aspect of it
