Game Explanation: Before class, prepare some colour-by-numbers worksheets, with the areas to be coloured in identified in English (‘BLUE’). Place some coloured pieces of paper with the colour name written on each at the other end of the classroom. Students must check their colouring sheets, race to the other end of the classroom to find out what colour goes where, and race back to colour the sheet. The first student to correctly colour his or her worksheet is the winner.
Note: This can also be played as a team game, but you’ll probably need much bigger colouring sheets.
