Pass the Parcel – Before class, Wrap a candy bar with lots of newspaper. Each layer of newspaper will have a Chinese phrase or word they know. Play music. When the music stops, the student holding the parcel gets to unwrap ONE layer and read the Chinese word. Play the music again. Students pass the parcel around. When the music stops, the student holding the parcel unwraps ONE layer and reads the word. Do this, until all layers have been unwrapped and the candy is found.
