BRIEF OUTLINE: Students exchange character cards and find out what each character does. The aim is to collect as many characters as possible.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • ILikeHalloween  attachments: Includes a worksheet and character cards (16 per sheet). Make sure to change "ALT/JTE" on the worksheet.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After reviewing the names of the characters on the attachment, hand out the worksheet and present the example.
  2. Tell the students they must find out what each character(s) does.
  3. Give each student a card and model the dialogue. It helps to use giant cards for this.
    • This is Dracula. He likes Halloween.
    • These are ghosts. They play baseball.
  4. Students mingle and say the sentences in pairs, filling in the worksheet according to the answer. After they say the dialogue, they switch cards and find another character.
  5. After 8 minutes call "Stop!" The students who found the most characters win.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This is based on the Englipedia game Introducing Characters but uses Halloween characters and focuses on practicing present and plural present tense verbs.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Make sure students speak English and don't look at each other's cards.
