The teacher gives a flashcard to the first child, without the others seeing it.
She/He then says to the student:
- Make the action.
- Make the noise.
- Say the words (without naming the transport).
The other students have to guess.
Let each student take it in turn to use: speech (in English of course), movement, gesture and sound to
act out being a passenger or rider.
|Ideas for transport||Ideas for sounds to make and what to say and actions|
|Car||Noise of car. “Drive straight”. “Turn left”. “Park here.”|
|Helicopter||Noise of helicopter. “Take off now. “ “Hover over the city.”|
|Airplane||Noise of plane taking off. “We are taking off.” “Fasten your seat belts.”|
|Parachute||“Jump!” Noise of Whooshing. “Get ready to land.” “Roll over onto ground.”|
|Fire Engine||Fire alarm noise. “Put on your helmets.” “Get the water hose.”|
|Steam train||Noise of steam train. “Which platform?” Whistle. “Close the doors please.”|
|Rowing boat||“Get your oars ready.” Action of rowing. “Don’t fall in.”|
|Bicycle||Action of cycling. “Let’s race.” “I’ve got a puncture.” Bicycle bell sound.|
|Skateboard||“Can you ride on two wheels?” “I can spin.” Imitate actions of skate-boarding.|
Remind the students making the demo not to say the name of the transport.
This is what the other students have to guess.
