4. Gesture Line Game (Gesture Dengon Game) 8+ students
a. Split the class into teams (preferably 4+ students per team) and have them line up with their teams. b. Have all the students face the front of the class. Show a flashcard of the animal, only to the students at the back of the line from each team. the student in the back shows the student in front of them a gesture of the animal shown on the flashcard (no talking). Each student has 5-10 seconds to gesture to the student in front of them. Once the student at the very front sees the gesture, stop. Have all the students in the front of the line (from each team) say the name of the animal that was gestured to them on the count of 3 (in English). c. After each round the student in the front of the line goes to the back of the line (repeat until all students have a chance at the front, or until the remaining time to play is up).
