This is a revision lesson plan for CAE students studying advanced relative clause phrases such as: all of whom, some of which etc.
Here’s the handout:
I use this game as a revision/warmer after we’ve already studied advanced relative clause phrases with which and whom.
Draw two columns on the board with the titles which (objects/things) and whom (people) and have students recall as many relative clause phrases as they can:
|Which (objects/things)||Whom (people)|
|In which (where)
All of which
Some of which
None of which
Both of which
Neither of which
(1,2,3) of which
|All of whom
Some of whom
None of whom
Both of whom
Neither of whom
(1,2,3) of whom
Students may struggle with the difference between neither of whom/which and none of whom/which.
Neither refers to just two people/things where as none refers to a group of at least three:
Two students came to class, neither of whom had done their homework.
Ten students came to class, none of whom had done their homework.
There were two buses waiting to take people to the city centre, neither of which had enough space for us.
There were three buses waiting to take people to the city centre, none of which had enough space for us.
Cut out the hand out and divide the class into teams, one volunteer must attempt to draw the situation described in the picture, the team that calls out the corresponding sentence gets 1 point. Continue until all the situations have been used.
Draw the following sentences:
|A group of children, some of whom are wearing hats, are waiting for the bus.||Four houses, two of which are on fire.|
|A group of men, all of whom are wearing glasses, are watching TV.||Two dogs, both of which are eating bones, are at the beach.|
|Two men, neither of whom has hair, are playing tennis.||Two pizzas, both of which have mushrooms, are on the table.|
|Two snakes, both of which are green, are sleeping on the carpet.||Ten bottles, all of which are full, are sitting on the wall.|
|Five babies, two of whom are sleeping, are lying on the bed.||Five cats, some of which are black, are playing with a ball.|
