Light Sabres

How do I use light sabres in my lesson? I was asked this on Twitter the other day as I mentioned them. So here is the recipe for utter chaos and lots of fun! Two students have a light sabre each. They stand back to back. I call out a sentence in English and the two students have to translate the sentence or phrase into the target language. When they say the phrase they have to turn round, at great speed, point their light sabre and shout out the TL phrase. The student who says it correctly first wins, and the “loser” sits down and is replaced by the next challenger! It is a great starter or plenary task and loved by all students. I also use toy swords and plastic carrots!!!!!
