As each child in the clip describes an activity, the clip could be paused and students could discuss whether they think the children in Marseille liked or disliked the activity. The clip could be stopped after the rush ball demonstration and students could discuss what they think the aim of the game is. Students could highlight the vocabulary they knew and how this helped them to learn about the game. After watching the whole clip, students could match up the name of each game with the image of the equipment needed for the activity. Had the students heard of any of these activities?
