Hi! It's been a while! I would like to thank Charline Baude for this idea of class poker. This is a game that you can easily play with the whole class, with little (or no) preparation. Divide the class into 2 teams. Shout out a piece of vocab, a question etc. If the pupils know what the 'answer' is, they should stand up. The team with the most pupils standing up wins a point. They can bluff, so they could stand up and not know the answer; however, they have got to be prepared for you picking someone at random and asking for the answer! This is great for revision, especially with older classes. You could adapt it and get them to play it in groups, but for this they need an odd number of players, so someone can be teacher and you may also need to provide them with the materials for asking the questions.
