Knowledge required: Specific phrases or vocabulary from the topic being taught.
Equipment required: IWB (http://www.kscience.co.uk/animations/pass_the_bomb.htm)
Useful as: starter (if recapping from previous lesson), reinforcement of expressions just taught, plenary.
How to play the game:
Divide your class into two teams.
Click on the start button.
Point at a specific student from Team A and give them an English / TL word. That student has to translate the word.
Your finger then moves to a student from Team B who gets the next word and so on.
If the bomb explodes whilst your finger is pointing at a student, the opposing team gets a point.
The bomb explodes at different time intervals! You can decide on the winning total. First to five points seems to work well.
