Evolution (variation)

Objective
To practice using any grammar point or vocabulary, in this case, "Do you like~?"
  1.  Arrange the flash cards on the board in a straight line. You can ask the students to rank them or decide the order yourself.
  2. Point to the first card, for example 'banana', and say that you, the teacher and everyone else is a banana. Then point to the last card, for example 'gorilla', and say that you want to be a gorilla.
  3. Greet the teacher and ask the target question using the first card.
    Eg. ""Do you like bananas?""
    The teacher must answer ""Yes, I do"" because they are also a banana.
  4. Janken each other. The winner progresses to the next card while the loser stays the same. Demonstrate by pointing to your (new) card. If you won janken you would be the next card (eg. apple) and the teacher would still be a banana.
  5. Talk to the teacher again. ""Do you like apples?"" because you are now an apple. The teacher must say ""No, I don't"" because they are still a banana. You may only say ""Yes, I do"" if your current card is the same.
  6. Once the students understand, release the mayhem.
