Splat frog fun - teaching physical appearance

How much fun can a splat ball (in this case a splat frog)  bring to the classroom?

Well, see it for yourself:

While teaching "Physical appearance" the kids had to make a small poster with a picture from a magazine. After that, they had to hit the right image with the sticky frog according to the description that they had listened to.
It's really a fun and great activity to practice listening.

This is the famous splat frog. He looks quite bored doesn't he? :)

I first heard about this "toy" from Chris Roland. He's a wonderful teacher whose talk I had the pleasure to attend on the last APPI conference. You can check more about him and his work here:
