|Food, food, and more food!
Activity type: Contest
Time: 1015 minutes
Preparation: None (possible prize for contest winners)
Procedure: Have students form pairs. Explain that this is a contest where each pair has three minutes to think of and list as many items as possible for each category of food that you write on the board. Write some (or all) of the following categories on the board:
After three minutes, say "Stop!" Read each category on the board out loud, and have the pairs read out the different foods that they listed. If a food is mentioned by more than one pair, then no points are awarded. Points are awarded only for unique answers. The pair with the most points wins.
Option: Instead of giving students the categories, have the class brainstorm their own. Then play the game as it is described above.
