  • Talk a Minute
    Split the class into teams. Each student must talk about a certain topic for one minute. If they can do this without hesitation, they win a point for their team. If they hesitate, another team can challenge, and continue for the rest of the minute. If the challenging team finishes the minute, they get a point. Otherwise no points are given. The team with the most points wins. If there are many students in a class, pairs of students can both have a conversation on a topic for a minute or more.
