A short play/skit:
This is a very short ´play´ for teenage beginners. If you have a more advanced student, they could read the part of the teacher. It´s based on getting answers mixed up so that they are funny. You could get your class to use this as a basis and come up with something similar. About 16 parts, but this could be changed.

Christmas Activities
There are some great cliparts on here! I have set the activities/questions to fly in. You might want to just show the images first and get the pupils to describe them. Or play ´Splat!´ Two pupils come to the board. Teacher describes an image. The pupil to touch it first is the winner.

Christmas ´Guess who I am?´ or ´Guess what I am?´
The clues first, then the image flies in. This is not an original idea. Also, the last slide isn´t really about Christmas, but I couldn´t resist! ;-)
