Then distribute small flashcards to the children and in pairs they have to secretly pick a card and draw what they see onto their partners back. The partner has to draw onto a piece of paper what they think their partner drew on their back.
After about five minutes or as soon the first pair has finished you can start asking children to come to the board and glue the flashcard on the walls or draw the item of clothing on the board. Then when all the items are on the board, the teacher elicits and provides the words. (15min)
