Another Missing Fruits Game
Students try to remember what fruits are missing from the fruit stall.

Inspired by: What's the missing fruit?
Estimated time: 10-15 minutes
Original activity was inspired by https://www.altopedia.net/activities/2145-what-s-the-missing-fruit. I followed the same recipe and added some personal flair. I changed around the artwork and included blackout slides between rounds, so that students have a few seconds to forget before the next set of fruits is unveiled.
The first slide is a review of what fruits are present in the stall. They drop from the top one by one and you can prompt to students to tell you what the name of the fruit it (Or, in my experience, they'll yell out the fruits unprompted). Once all of the fruits have been laid out, a prompt appears for the students to remember what's in the stall. Give them a few seconds and move on to the next slide, which is prompted by a curtain drop.
Give the students a few seconds to forget what's in the stall while the curtain is down (I usually do a quick countdown from 5) then move onto the next slide, which has 1 or more fruits missing. Have them try to guess which fruit is gone (They usually get it pretty quickly.)
Each consecutive round increases the number of missing fruits by 1. (1, then 2, then 3, etc). There is also a set of "challenge" rounds that shuffles around the positions of the fruits.
(Most of the artwork for the fruits was taken from https://japaclip.com/. Highly recommend the site, has many great images for these types of projects)
