I would love to hear about the material light activities that work for you and your learners, so why not take part in the ELTBITES Minimal Challenge, which is;
Describe an activity in no more than 200 words that requires no advance preparation of materials and relies on nothing more than the students, teacher and usual classroom resources of board, pens, paper etc. Post to your blog and leave a COMMENT here with a link to your post. If you don’t have a blog you can simply post your idea as a comment.
To see all the activities written so far (including Christmas ones).
