Open the "White Elephant" activity in two different pages and assing one page to each team.
The members of the two teams have to take turns to go shopping and ask for a toy using the correct questions (see the pdf exercises). They can't spend more than 20 £ so when they think they can't afford any further item they must say stop.
The team who spend the biggest amount of money (within 20£) is the winner
Idea 2: Open the "Change White Elephant" page. Divide the class in 2 teams. Children come to the IWB in pairs: they ask for a toy each and then they have to pay. If they can calculate the correct change, they get a point for their team. The team that gets more points is the winner.
This is a very good crosscurricular activity: students speak English and practice maths in an involving virtual context.

It is one of the most important museums of the world displaying human history, art and culture.

Open the folder in the link, find a page you want to modify, download it to your computer and start working on it: change picture, choose the languages you want to use in the calendar and remame the month, the days, check if the dates are ok, or modify them, add your festivals and holidays, and make up a cover for your calendar. When your pages are ready, you can print your own calendar (A3 format).
