BRIEF OUTLINE: Students will run around the room to find hidden cards, read and remember the cards, then return to their desks to write sentences, changing "I am ~" sentences to "This is (name). He/She is ~."





          1) Cut out each picture (with speech bubbles) separately before class.

          2) Prepare a piece of tape for each picture card.


          1) Tell students to "go to sleep" (eyes closed, heads down), then tape the picture cards around the classroom.

          2) Give students the “Who is this?” worksheet. 

          3) Students will search for the pictures. Once a student finds a piece of paper, he/she will read it and remember               the sentence, then go back to his/her desk to write the information.

          4) The student will have to change the sentences from "I am ~" into "This is (name)." or "He is ~./She is ~." for the           other information.

          5) The student can then go search for another picture card, repeating steps 3-4 until they have found all 18 cards           and have filled in their worksheet.



          1) When hiding the picture cards around the classroom, it's fine if a few are obviously placed, taped to a wall or                window for example, but it's more fun for the students if some of them are a bit more hidden (taped under a desk,            in  the doorframe, on the back of a chair). Though they all should be at least partially visible so as not to be too                difficult for the students to find within the time limit.

          2) The "Who is this?" worksheet must stay on their desks. 

          Students CANNOT carry it (or any notepads/pens/etc.) with them. Likewise, they are not to bring the picture                   cards back to their desks or otherwise move them from their hiding spots.

          3) If students weren't able to find all the picture cards before time is up, they can work in groups to help fill in the missing information.

          4) If students are unsure about pronouns, you can tell them to use "He" for Mickey, Snoopy, Stitch, and Pikachu, and "She" for Lilo and Hello Kitty.
