Act out the preposition game

Split Ss into two teams. Go over possible prepositions and assign an action for each of them (e.g.
clap for on, jump for in etc) The Ss will now take turns reading gap fill sentences to 2 other Ss
from opposite teams. The Ss who manages to remember the matching gesture for each
preposition and does the action + says the complete phrasal verb, wins a point for his team.
