6. Categories game
a silly game, to end class on a high note, we will play a category
game. We will have a ball, I will give the category, when a student has
the ball they must say a word in that category, and then pass it to the
Student one-Pizza (throws ball to student 2)
Student two-ice cream
This continues until one student can't think of a word in that category.
