Download tekhnologic’s amazing game templates from here. This week I’m going to play jeopardy with my teenagers and a like/dislike boardgame with my young learners. Try out my completed ones below or download the templates yourself and make your own.
like-dislike-boardgame – target language: I like/don’t like/hate/love/don’t mind. Ss in groups role the dice, move round the board and make sentences about the corresponding picture.
jeopardy-trivia-1-Put ss in teams, they roll a dice to decide which category they answer: Sport, art, geography, science, music, literature. They decide how difficult a question they want on a scale of 1-5. They are given the answer to a question, they have to guess what the question is, for example:
Answer: Usain Bolt
Question: Who’s the fastest man in the world?
If they get it right they get the corresponding number of points depending how difficult the question was.
This is a fun warmer to get students working in teams and having a laugh.
Divide the class into 2 teams. Tell each team to nominate the member with the most artistic ability. The two nominees then come to the board which will be divided into two halves. Then give each team a comedy picture of you (make sure the person at the board doesn’t see it). Alternatively, you could use my pictures from here (I gave out the two above) or some downloaded from the internet but its more fun if it’s a picture of you. Give them 5 minutes to describe and draw the picture, you may need to quickly go over some language for picture descriptions, which you will find in this lesson plan.
Then put the original pictures on the board next to the drawings and do a spot the difference comparison, what did they get right/wrong? Be sure to take a photo of their drawings and upload it to your class blog, if you have one.
Classic ESL classroom game.
Students have to describe the word in bold at the top of the card without using the two words printed beneath.
Lots of fun as a warm up game or to have in your back pocket for emergencies.
