  • Pass the Parcel
    Before class wrap an inexpensive prize in layers of wrapping. In class have the students sit in a circle and play some music. Students pass the parcel round the circle while the music is playing. When you stop the music, the student currently holding the parcel gets to remove one layer of wrapping. Then restart the music, stop, and so on. Continue until the prize is revealed.
    For more English usage, before the student can remove a layer they must also answer an English question. Great for general review and lots of fun!
