Warm Up Activity for Jump Start

Our Year 10 students start their Jump Start courses in week 5. This gives them a chance to start their NCEA Level 1 courses for 4 weeks before next year.
I am going to do the following warm up activity with my class when I get them.
It is based loosely on Pictionary, where the students work in pairs and get a photograph of an object that they then have to describe to their partner without using the name of the actual object. Their partner has to guess what they are trying to describe. Once they have guessed correctly, they can move on to the next image.
There is two rounds of this so they can swap and both have a go.

What I like about this is the fact that the students are describing products / objects and using verbal literacy and thinking skills without knowing that we are focusing on this.
