Aliens and Villagers
An action song role-play designed to practice names and jobs. Each villager adopts a new identity: a name and a job and is interrogated by the Aliens Choir in a line. Children are either Villagers or Aliens. The Aliens have come to find out about the Villagers. They want to know each villager’s name and job.
Great fun and extremely effective.
