BRIEFOUTLINE: An information gap activity where students ask their partner to work out the pictures on the worksheet.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

IsThisGap attachments: There are 2 options. Half of the class receives an ‘A’ worksheet and half a ‘B’ worksheet.

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

Write up the dialogue on the board:

(Points to picture one). Is this a tree?

Yes, it is! OR No, it’s not. It’s a banana.

Thanks! Please sign here.

Hand out the worksheets. Give students five minutes to draw what they think each picture is.

Students make pairs and janken for order.

Students check their guesses by asking their partner questions, using the dialogue. Points are rewarded for correct guesses and tallied on to their worksheet.

For numbers 7, 8 and 9 on the worksheet, students may draw their own pictures and provide two options for their partner. Students fold their paper along the dotted line before allowing their partner to guess.

VARIATIONS:

Students can instead aim to get a different signature for each picture. They pair up, ask their partner ‘Is this a banana or a camera?’. The other student answers and signs the paper.

Raymond's Variation: For indecisive or lower-level classes, you can skip Step 5 (Drawing three original pictures) and spend more time on Steps 3 & 4 (speaking) by using the Option 2 worksheet. (12 completed pictures instead of six completed and three incompleted).
