This is a class for low levels to practice the structures “there was/were” and prepositions of place.
Quickly recap prepositions of place with a pen and paper: on, in, under, above, next to, in front of etc.
Now tell students you are going to show them a photo and they have to remember as much detail as they can. Show them the photo above for 1 minute, then hide the photo. Students must recall as many of the objects as they can, award 1 point for each correct sentence using there was/were.
There was a cat under the table.
There were two plants on the table-
There was a green and white folder on the chair.
There were two batteries behind the plants.
The show students more photos, you can either use my photos or take photos of your own messy flats and use those. Or you could tell students to take a photo of their own messy bedroom and bring it in for the next class to recap. Here are some more photos:

Thanks you! this activity was very useful under quarantine. I’m teaching a big group online and they were very engaged with this activity. We even made a contest, lol.
Brilliant! Glad to hear it worked well.
