Telling a Story: Speaking

Material:  6-7 diverse objects (e.g. a candle, a pen, red chilly powder, a CD, cotton, shoe laces, spoon) and a box.
Preparation:  Before class, fill the box with 6-7 random objects. In order to make the activity interesting, the objects should be diverse and unrelated to each other.

  1. Divide the class into 4-5 small groups.
  2. Call one student from each group to take out only one object from the box and place that on a table.
  3. Then instruct each group to form a story by using their imagination and creativity.
  4. Ask each group to tell their stories one by one.
