Improvisations part 2
Sometimes I adapt activities from TV shows, games, etc.
The following activity is from a drama group called ‘Mahser-i Cumbus’. While watching their performance, I usually find great ideas for my classes.
It sounds a bit confusing but it really is fun.
Student A stands up and mimes. While miming she makes a sentence with another action.
Student B comes and mimes the action student A has just said but says something else.
The situation should look and sound something like this:
A: (brushing his teeth) I’m drinking a cup of coffee
B: (drinking a cup of coffee) I’m washing my hands.
C: (washing his hands) I’m writing a letter.
