Against the computer

Equipment required: Projector and mini-whiteboards


Useful as: Starter (if recapping from previous lesson), reinforcement of vocabulary just taught, plenary.


Medium: Powerpoint.   Go to 'Custom Animation', 'Add Effect', 'Entrance', 'Color Typewriter'.   The speed can then be altered as appropriate.


How to play the game: Animate your words so that the computer types the words at varying speeds.   Students have to write the words clearly on the whiteboard before the computer finishes typing.   A point can be given for the team which holds up three correctly spelt words the quickest.
