Adjectives (Activity 1) 

 Make your students stand in a circle.
 Ask them to make an adjective with the first letter of his name.
e.g. Ambitious Ali, Sweet Salman, Keen Kamran etc.
 Start clockwise. Each student makes an adjective.
 When any student is stuck and unable to find any adjective, he
is out of the circle.
 The activity continues till the last student keeps standing and
wins the contest.

one object. E.g. a neat new black marker.
