  • The student standing answers the question with any of the responses pictured on the cards.

  • If a sitting students hears the answer that matches their card, they have to stand up and find a new place to sit.

  • The student standing in the middle tries to find a seat too.

  • The student who doesn't get a seat is the new person standing in the middle and the game continues.

  • However, if the student standing is the middle says, "fruit salad," all students must stand up and find new seats.

  • If you have no key expression question, omit this part of the instructions and only have the person in the middle say a word/sentence.
