LENGTH: 5-10 minutes
TOPIC: discuss given topics
Choose a candy that is affordable and has different colors, we use LENTILKY in Czechia, but M&M’s are available worldwide and work as well (just are not as delicious). Then create a list of questions or topics, as many as there are different colors of your chosen candy. After that, assign each color a question/topic which can vary based on your students’ level.
Let students work in groups (5-6 students is optimal) and let them independently choose a candy, talk about the assigned topic, eat the candy, and again and again and again.
Make a rule of how long/how many sentences the person has to talk about a given topic – 20-30 seconds or 8 sentences usually work very well.
