BRIEF
OUTLINE: Students ask each other what various countries in Europe look like (on a map).

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1.  Explain the grammar point.
  2.  Hand out the worksheet and hang the 12 European country posters around the room.
  3.  Students find a partner (or assign partners) and ask "What does ~ look like?", the person they asked has to go and find that poster, fill in the answer on their own sheet, and report back to the asker.
  4.  Stop them after 15 min and go over the grammar again.

 

VARIATIONS:

  •  Use cards instead of the posters.
  •  Use the cards for an information gap activity.
  •  Sit them in pairs with one worksheet between them.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  •  "How Do I Look?" works great as a warm up, you can even print it on the back and save some paper.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • 12 countries is a lot. I used them all, but you might want to delete a few.
