Football Hot Seat

Football Hot Seat

This is a simple game to encourage students to explain vocabulary rather than using translation. It can be used with any vocabulary, but for this activity we have supplied a list of suitable football related vocabulary terms. 
 
Red card Yellow card Send off Referee
Penalty Free kick Wall Off side
Tackle Kit Striker Goal keeper
Corner Goal kick Foul Throw in
Shoot Header Touchline Dive
Half time Volley Pitch Net 

 

Procedure

Divide the students into 2 - 3 groups. Take one chair for each group and place it with its back towards the board. Choose one player from each group to site in the chair with their back to the board.

Now write one of the vocabulary words on the board. The students in the chair is unable to see the word on the board, so the rest of the team have to explain the word without using any part of the word or translating it (they have to define the word). The first student in the chair to guess the word correctly gets a point for their team.

The person in the chair changes each time you write up a new word.

This activity can become very competitive, so make sure students don’t cheat and they are giving good definitions or explanations of the word.

Over to you: Tell us what you think

What do you think of this activity?
Would it work with your students?
Can you think of a way to use it differently or make it better?
