Subject: Geometric shapes


Skills: Listening.

Level: A2

Recommended Age: 10-12 y.o.

Number of Participants: 6-12 players, preferably even.

Time: 20-30 minutes.

Place: Playground.

Equipment: Not required.

Materials: Two sticks of chalk.

Preliminary Preparation: Not required.

Immediate Preparation (5-10 minutes). First draw two rectangles about 2 m high and 3 m wide at one end of the playground. Next draw a starting line at the other end and put the players behind it. Then, if necessary, draw geometric shapes in front of the starting line and write their names. After that, introduce the shapes to the players. Next divide them into halves and put each team in a column. Finally, provide the front players with the sticks of chalk, which also serve as batons.

How to Play. You call out, e.g.: 'Circle!'. The first players run to their ‘carpets’ and draw a circle on them. After their returning, you command, e.g.: 'Triangle!' and so on. You can repeat the words as many times as you wish. The winner of the game is the first team to finish the relay race in the case of their correct drawing shapes. Otherwise, the victory is awarded to the other team.
