BRIEF OUTLINE:   Students are shown one of two pictures. Using the target sentences, they ask other students whether they saw the same picture and give their impression of the picture they saw.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • SenseisPicture attachment - there should be two pictures of each object, a good picture and a bad/mediocre one. There are eight pictures of four objects attached. Feel free to use your own pictures

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Divide the pictures up between the you and the JTE - 2 good/bad pictures apiece.
  2. Divide the class into two groups, one group for each teacher. Teachers decide on one object and each teacher shows only their group their picture of that object. Let's say for example the ALT was assigned Group A and the JTE was in charge of Group B.
  3. Students walk around, find a partner from the other group and question each other:
      • A: "Did you see ALT sensei`s picture?"
      • B: "No, I didn`t. Did you?" (or, "How about you?")
      • A: "Yes, it was _____." (adjective)
      • B: "Really?" (or, "Was it?") "Did you see JTE sensei`s picture?"
      • A: "No, I didn`t. Did you?" (or, "How about you?")
      • B: "Yes, it was _____." (adjective)
      • A: "Really?" (or, "Was it?")
4. After a few minutes have the students sit down and vote on which picture they think is the best from what they have heard. Then, reveal both pictures.
5. Repeat the process for each set of pictures you have until you run out of them.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Try using one set of pictures that are identical and see how the students handle the activity

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Here is a way of explaining steps 2 and 3 without the example:
    • Divide the class into two groups, one group for each teacher. Teachers decide on one object and each teacher shows only their group their picture of that object.
    • Students walk around, find a partner from the other group and question each other:
      • A: "Did you see _____ sensei`s picture?" (picture the A saw)
      • B: "No I didn`t. Did you?" (or, "How about you?")
      • A: "Yes, it was _____" (adjective)
      • B: "Really?" (or, "Was it?")
    • Students reverse roles and repeat.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Students are crafty! Make sure that each student only sees one teacher`s picture.
