T & L activity of the week – Pass the Parcel.

ParcelThis strategy is useful as an engaging connect that encourages high level thinking. Plus, it’s fun.

  • Use an object that is related to the lesson topic.
  • Write a series of clues about what the object is on strips of paper.
  • Wrap up the object in layers of wrapping paper with a clue in each layer
  • Play music and pass the parcel around the students.
  • Stop the music at several points and the student holding the parcel unwraps one layer and reads the clue.
  • Continue until the object has been identified.
