The teacher enters the classroom holding a mysterious box, and all the students’ curiosity is piqued. The teacher then sets the box down on the table and tells the students that they will be doing a fun exercise to kick off their English lesson for the day.

The teacher then instructs the students to form pairs and select a partner. The students are asked to come up with a list of adjectives to describe the box. The teacher gives the students a few minutes to complete this task.

After the students have compiled a list of adjectives, the teacher asks them to share their descriptive words with the class. The teacher writes the adjectives on the board as the students share. This exercise is an excellent way to help the students use their descriptive language skills.

Then, the teacher opens the mysterious box, and each student takes a turn fishing out an item from it. The students must then use their creativity to write a short story or a poem describing the object they have selected from the box.

This exercise not only helps develop the students' language skills but also ignites their imagination and creative thinking. It is an excellent way to stimulate their curiosity and make them eager to learn more. Finally, the teacher can use this exercise as a springboard to introduce the English lesson topic for the day.
