Teacher: Read this secret massage using the numbers. Each number corresponds to the letter in the alphabet. Who will be the fastest?



(Key: I want some books. Please, bring some.)

5. ______ or OLD.

(Each team performs a popular song in English. It may be accompanied by dancing or acting out a scene.)


Teacher: Our next task is connected with logical thinking. Just use your heads to solve the following brain teasers.

1. New shoes.

  One day, two mothers and daughters were shopping for shoes. Their shopping was successful – each bought a pair of shoes, and all together, they bought three pairs. How is it possible?

(Key: Only three people went shopping: a grandmother, a mother, and a daughter – but remember that the mother was the grandmother’s daughter.)

2. Name the dog.

  Once a dog named Nelly lived on a farm. There were three other dogs on the farm. Their names were Blacky, Whitey, and Brownie. What do you think the fourth dog’s name was?

(Key: Nelly. If there are only four dogs on the farm, the fourth one must be Nelly.)

3. Coast to coast.

  Train A and train B are crossing the country, from coast to coast, over 3,000 miles of railroad track. Train A is going from East to West at 80 miles per hour, and train B is going from West to East at 90 miles per hour. Which train will be closer to the west coast when they meet?

(Key: When the trains meet they will be in the same place. Therefore, they will each be at the same distance from the west coast.)

4. Getting across.

  Ms. Waters and her twins, Danny and Army, want to cross from the east side of the river to the west side in a canoe. But the canoe can hold no more than 200 pounds. Ms. Waters weighs 160 pounds, and Danny and Army weigh 100 pounds each. How can all three reach the other side of the river in the canoe?

(Key: First the twins go to the west side of the river. Anny stays on the west side, and Danny comes back. Ms. Waters goes alone to the west side, leaving Danny on the east side. Finally, Anny comes back for Danny. Together they go to the west side of the river. You can shift Anny and Danny – it doesn’t matter which one goes first.)


Teacher: In this game which is called “CAPMAN” you have to fill in a special table with several columns:


-article of clothing;





  (Captain1 recites the alphabet silently till Captain2 interrupts him by saying “Stop”. Captain1 says what letter he has stopped at. For example, it is the letter “M’. Both captains fill in the table writing down the name of the city beginning with “M”, the name of the plant beginning with “M” etc. as fast as possible.

  The captain who has been the first to fill in the table says “Stop”. After that none is allowed to continue filling in the table. Then they compare the results. If the answers in the same column coincide, both captain get 5 points, if they are different, they get 10 point. If there is only one answer to the task, the captain gets 15 points.)


Article of clothing







morning glory
