Five-Minute Activities: A Resource Book of Short Activities.
Ur, Penny; Wright, Andrew
This book provides about 130 short, easily-prepared activities to supplement the longer teaching procedures that make up the main body of an English course. Suitable for elementary to advanced levels, the activities presented in the book can serve as a quick warm-up for the students, an idea for a brief vocabulary review, a light filler to provide relief after a period of intense effort and concentration, a brief orientation activity to prepare for a change of mood or topic, or as a game or amusing item to round off the lesson with a smile. The process of each activity is described briefly, with examples, and in most cases, sample material for immediate use is provided. The book notes that almost all the activities can be student led. A 20-item bibliography lists books that contain other activities. (RS)
