RIDDLE: "What is the shortest word in English that has the letters a, b, c, d, e, and f?" <answer below>


NOTES: The expression "I think that..." is usually taught as a way to express your opinion(s) about something, but the Japan's JHS English textbooks classify this particular expression into the 'Conjunction' category: if, when, because and that. That being said, I have split this grammar point into its own page labelled 'Opinion'.


Also, I have redirected New Horizon's Writing+ 1 (book 3) to this page because 'argumentation' topics use this grammar point as well.


100 Yen Shop: Students guess which items are 100 yen or antiques.
Agree Writing Practice: Students practice writing why or why not they agree with certain controversial statements.
I Have No Idea!: Students try to guess their partner’s drawing then write their answer on their worksheet.
I Think That (Q&A): Students write their opinions on various people/things and then interview other students.
Let's Agree to Disagree: Students practice sentences to debate for/against a motion.
Mario Board Game 2.0: This is another Mario board game that is pretty flexible. You just have to modify the worksheet to make it fit any grammar point. For this version, students write their opinions about certain topics and ask their friends their opinions while playing a fun Mario board game.
Opinion Interviews: Students review and learn new adjectives and then poll their classmates about different topics.
Opinion Walk: Students walk to different sides of the room to show their opinions.
What Do You Think of Interviews: Students survey their friends than write up their findings.
Salesmen: Students sell random products to one buyer. If their product gets bought, they get a point and become the next buyer.
Think Battleship: Students battle it out in this classic game while using "I think."
Total English Word Search: Texbook specific word search focusing on units 2B and 2C.
What Do You Think: Students first write their opinions on several different things, then ask other student their opinions and take them down.
What Do You Think of English: Students translate the adjectives into Japanese then ask each other their opinions.
