BRIEF OUTLINE: Students compete to find different people in the classroom.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Pictures of various students in the classroom: happy, sad, angry, tall, etc.  NOTE: You'll need to snap various students' pictures before you do this activity.
  • Binoculars or something like it.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After getting the students break up into lunch groups, tape the adjective pictures around the room.
  2. Make a big space in the middle of the room and place one desk in the open area. Then, place one chair for each group around the desk.  Make sure each chair is facing away from the desk. Place the binoculars on the desk.
  3. Have one person from each team take a seat.
  4. The ALT/JTE will say ''How does ___ look?'' The students that find the correct picture that connects with the name must grab the binoculars first. Looking through them at the picture they must say how that picture looks.
    • ALT: How does Tim look?
    • Student: Tim looks sad.
  5. The student who answers correctly gets a point for their group. If not correct, that student loses that turn and another student gets to try. NOTE: Keep an eye on the students who were the 2nd and 3rd closest to grabbing the binoculars so they get to try next.
  6. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • While the individual students are sitting in the circular seats, the rest of the students in the groups must have their heads down so they do not study the pictures. This allows a more fair game and excitement.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Binoculars are not needed but it makes the activity more fun.
