How to play:
Split your class into 2 teams. Get the students, in turns to sit in the hot-chair in front of the whiteboard facing the others. The others in the team say one phrase or sentence each describing the object until the one in the hot-chair guesses correctly. Then the students swap places for the hot-chair. 1 point per correct answer. All students can pass but if you pass on the vocabulary they don´t get that point.
Allow 2-3 minutes per team. Use this great classroom timer!
