Optional - something to record the students responses on (e.g. paper/pen) which can later be used as a prompt;

Soft ball or beanbag.

  1. Go round each student, asking them what their favourite food is - write it down and/or do a very rough sketch of it as you go;
  2. One student has a ball, they choose another student and say the other student's name and what their favourite food is - for example "Tom - you like burgers". They then pass the ball to that student. Use the prompt card if necessary.

To make it harder, you can go around again asking for favourite drinks - so that everyone now has to remember a food and a drink for each student when they pass the ball (e.g "Tim - you like carrot cake and tea").

You could use favourite games, favourite places to go, etc. instead.
