Each person chooses an everyday task, such as making a cup of tea, washing-up, writing a letter, drawing a picture and so on. Everyone practices miming that activity on their own – broken down into exactly six movements. It’s important that this is practiced so it can be remembered later.
Again the partners separate and move on to find yet new partners. After three or four swaps, it is time to observe the results. Individuals are asked to show the final mime they observed. The teacher can then ask if anyone recognises it as their own original mime. If they do, they can show the original mime alongside the final version. Some of the mimes may stay fairly intact, while others will be unrecognisable!
Come back for a new Game next week!
