Consolidating MUCH/MANY with a veeeeery dynamic game!
So I had this other colleague who once gave me this great idea . I tried it with a medium size group I used to have and the result was nice! After teaching “much” and “many”, I divided my group in two teams and the board in two halves. In one of them I wrote MUCH and in the other one MANY. I had brought two small and light balls to class so each team would have one, and their mission was to toss the ball towards the correct half of the board according to what I was gonna say. For example: teacher says WATER. One student from each group should throw the ball towards the word MUCH at the same time. The team whose ball touches the correct side of the board first scores the point! A suggestion is to make use of this activity at the end of your class. Students usually get really excited about the whole competition that it would be difficult for you and for them to concentrate and go back to the book afterwards. Have a great time!
PS: I got the ball at a R$ 1,99 store, too.
