The game in the clip could be used to practise counting in Mandarin. Students could count along with the clip.

This clip could be used in a discussion about games in different countries. Is it like a game children play in this country? Are the rules the same? Investigate other typically Chinese playground games to inspire a spontaneous use of Mandarin and encourage students to play Jump House at playtime or in their free time.
