What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

What worked well in this class? What did not work?
It seemed to me that students liked the idea of learning the clothes and color vocabulary. They asked a lot of questions. Though some of them still didn’t pay much attention to what was going on in class. The game went well as they had to use the vocabulary to speak in Russian.

How could this class be improved/ modified?
