Brief Outline

Students move to the left or right side of the classroom depending on what they can or cannot do.  This game allows low-level/shy students to practice using the grammar point, “can” with their teammates before they move on to individual work.

 

Detailed Explanation

  1. Draw a big `X` on the left hand side (LHS) of the board and a big `O` on the right hand side (RHS).
  2. Ask the students, "Can you play baseball?" .
  3. Students move to the RHS of the room if they can and LHS of the room if they can`t play baseball.
  4. This divides the class into two teams.  The LHS team and the RHS team will interview each other in a loud voice and students will answer accordingly.
    • LHS: Can you play baseball?
    • RHS: Yes, I can (play baseball). Can you play baseball?
    • LHS: No, I can`t (play baseball).
  5. Repeat Step 2, replacing baseball with another vocabulary word. Keep playing until you think the students understand or are becoming bored.

 

Variations

  • For Step 3, if students take too long to pick a side, or if you just want to add some tension, give them a dramatic 5-second countdown to decide.

 

Teaching Suggestions

  • The best place to use this game is between activity 1 & 2 of lesson 4.
  • Have one teacher on each side of the room to guide/check the teams.
