BRIEF OUTLINE:  An information gap game where students ask each other the time and weather in different parts of the world.    




  1. Each student gets a writing worksheet and one card.
  2. They simply go around and use the new grammar to find the time and weather in different countries. The key phrases are "What time is it in~ ?" and "How is the weather in~?"
    3. They write down this information in their worksheets.



  • I used 3 different weather cards: cloudy, sunny, and rainy. You can add or subtract more.
  • The updated doc. version also allows for a simplified variation good for low level students:
  • Students start the game in pairs one student with worksheet A and one student with worksheet B.

1. Start with review flashcards of the weather: sunny, rainy, and cloudy.
2. If the students don't know time and numbers well, start by teaching that.
3. If the students are reviewing time and numbers, just practice a few examples. You can do this by having a few blank clocks written on the board, or by brining an actual clock you can manipulate the hour and minute hands on.
4. Finish by reviewing the country names.
