Brief Outline: Students interview each other using the ‘which’ grammar point, and then play bingo. The goal of the bingo game is to NOT get bingo.

 

Materials Needed:

 

Detailed Explanation:

  1. Student A will ask the question first. Student A can choose the adjective of which s/he wants to ask. For example, student A can say either, “Which pencil is longer?” or “Which pencil is shorter?” during the interview.
  2. Student B will answer the question accordingly. Student A will write student B’s name on his/her worksheet and circle the answer that student B says.
  3. Reverse roles and student B asks the question to student A.
  4. After students have completed the interview process, they choose 9 words from the vocabulary list and write them anywhere on the bingo square.
  5. Let’s play bingo! The JTE or ALT chooses 9 words and says it out loud. Students earn points according to how many bingos they get.

 

Teaching Suggestions:

  • The grammar point “which ~” that is used in this game is slightly different from the grammar point “which” on page 56. Although the concept is the same, students may be confused. Therefore, it’s a good idea to briefly explain the two different “which” before the game. For example, ‘Which pencil is longer?’ vs. ‘Which bus goes to the city hall
  • Always practice reading with the class to ensure pronunciation and understanding of the meaning.

  

Tips/Cautions:

  • Make sure students don’t erase the words once you start to play bingo.
