How to Play. To begin the competition, you ask the only question and the students take it in turns to answer it. A typical game might start something like this:
You: How can you use a pencil?
Player А: I can draw with it!
As a result of a correct answer, Player А gets one point.
Player B: I can write with it!
As a result of a correct answer, Player B gets two points.
Player C: I can use it as a pointer!
As a result of a correct answer, Player С gets three points.
Player D: I can use it as a ruler!
As a result of a correct answer, Player D gets four points.
Player E: I can mark with it!
As a result of a correct answer, Player E gets five points.
Player F: I can use it as a bookmark!
As a result of a correct answer, Player F gets six points.
If Player G cannot answer your question, you ask it with another key word and the score starts anew. Now this is Player G, whose turn to answer your question and so on. Follow the same procedure with all key words. The activity continues around the circle as long as the questions with all the key words have been answered. At the end of the activity, the number of points, accumulated by each participant during the whole competition, is counted up. The player, who gets the most points in total, becomes the winner of the game.
Variation. Here are some ideas for other key words: belt, book, brick, chair, fork, glass, hat, iron, plate, sheet, scissors, table, toothbrush.
