Prepare large flashcards (A4 size paper) of around 10 different colours. Also prepare smaller squares 2cm x 2cm for each child to have their own personal set of mini colour cards. These can be kept in envelopes.
Clear a space in the middle of the class, or go out to the playground. Explain that the left wall is true and the right wall is false.
- Stand at the front with the pupils in the middle, hold up a red card, and sayred, the pupils should run towards the ‘true’ side of the class or playground.
- Then hold up the yellow card and say blue, the pupils should run to the ‘false’ side. The pupils that are not sure will follow the majority and learn from their peers, which is very positive. Continue like this with the rest of the colours, varying correct/incorrect colours.
A more challenging variation to the activity is to hold up a flashcard, for example, red, and say Bananas are red! The pupils listen and decide whether the sentence is true or false and run to the corresponding place.
