Two Chinese girls play 'Jump House', a Chinese Hopscotch in school. When they play, they count the numbers in Mandarin from 1 to 10, then from 10 to 1.
This clip could be used to compare games in different countries - Is it like a game we play? Are the rules the same? Investigate other typically Chinese playground games to inspire a spontaneous use of Mandarin and encourage pupils to play 'Jump House' at playtime or in their free time. The game can be used to practise counting in Mandarin, pupils could count backwards as the children go back to the start or count items in the classroom.
