Activities: what I will do with it:
1. Read / say the rhyme with visuals (cards with colours, man / woman)
2. children repeat, with the help of visuals
3. children handle the visuals themselves whilst saying the rhyme
4. children stand in small groups in circles with one child in the middle saying the rhyme, the one who turns out to be “it”, goes in the middle and repeats
5. the rhyme could also be performed in assembly with visuals being held up

Child-appropriate way for internalising language
Demonstration of similarities in childhood games between between cultures (intercultural understanding)
