Just like its name sounds, you line up 2 students back-to-back. How I choose the 2 students is simple. Before class I’ll type all of their names into MS Word and print them out. Make sure you use a large font size. Cut them up and lay them out on the floor of the classroom.
Choose a student to start, and they’ll take a piece of paper. That student has to stand up and both of them get back-to-back. Now they have to try and remember what the other was wearing.
It might sound easy, but I rarely have 2 students that can say what color shirt the other is wearing, and if it’s a T-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, sweater, or even coat. They also have a hard time remembering if the other was wearing pants or jeans, and most cannot say what types of shoes, sandals, or boots were being worn.
The activity gets a lot of laughs, and each student gets a chance to speak, even though many don’t want to. It’s a great way to review clothes vocabulary, and since the students have a good time, you might want to try it when parents are around.
