Your humble servant - skeleton Yorick, is always at your service. It will be just in time to the most anticipated and terrible autumn holiday!
It will be useful in the following:
- Yorick will be a great decoration of the classroom, and if you hide it in the closet, you can not only surprise and scare the guests, but also learn the eponymous idiom "a skeleton in the closet" and get in exchange for sweets, what "skeletons" they hide in their closets;
- for the game "make up a skeleton" (glue magnetic paper on the back side of all parts).
1. make up the skeleton correctly;
2. make up a funny skeleton;
3. do it blindfolded by touch;
4. make up a skeleton faster than others (prepare several sets of bones, one for each team – in this case no need of magnetic paper on the back side).
- teach a song Skeleton Dance (dance and sing), and learn the names of the bones. Then get bones one by one from the bag, show it to the players. The first to name it correctly, wins a point for the team. Who has more bones, wins. Then see the previous paragraph "make up a skeleton”, but now let the participants have fun all together;
- if you have a variety of tasks and games for the holiday, but they do not have a common concept, come up with a common mission for the invited "evil". Precisely, to make up the skeleton, doing tasks and getting one part of the “bony puzzle” for every task/game. The skeleton is ready – everyone did a good job and earned sweets!
- "young archaeologists" will help to remember and repeat different vocabulary and grammar structures, great for speaking or writing as well as for having fun.
So, during the excavations a skeleton was found with all sorts of bells and whistles (prepare pictures of those things or items themselves beforehand). Divide the children into pairs or mini groups, their task is to come up with a funny story about who he was (m/f), how old, what nationality, what his profession was, hobby, what he liked to eat/wear or didn't, etc. and what happened to him in the end. Everything they can come up with, based on the findings offered.
- Quest. The skeleton is a mystery guest invited to the party. The "evil spirits" (kids) need to find out various facts about him, doing the tasks on the topics studied before. (for example: name could be a word encoded in a rebus, favorite or unloved food – unscramble the words + you may have them correlate the words with the pictures of food, his nationality - the answer to the riddle about the country, his profession - a set of non-obvious items from the workplace or a description of the daily routine, gender - clothing etc.)
Good luck with the party and have terrible fun!
