Have your students play with Appearance and Characteristics vocabulary with these game cards.
Students love playing games in their free time, be it video, mobile or tabletop games, but numerous studies have also shown the importance and positive impact games can have on learning. By incorporating games in your classroom you can help your learners develop a positive relationship with the language and English lessons. While working with games, the teacher’s role changes from an instructor to a guide. This helps you to reduce teacher talking time and make the students the centre of the lesson.
Try this game with your students using our Appearance and Characteristics Game Cards!!!
Who Is Who? (all levels):
- Give each student a set of cards and ask them to choose the cards that best describe a famous person of their choice.
- Ask students to write the name of their chosen celebrity in a paper strip without showing it to their classmate.
- Pick up the paper strips and write the names on the board.
- Then ask students to describe their chosen celebrity using the cards they have. The rest of the class should try to guess who is who.
- Continue until all students have participated. Encourage students to give one or two extra words to describe their celebrity and keep track of new vocabulary.
When working with games, let loose your creativity to build a motivating environment in your classroom. Remember that emotions are an important part of the learning process! Enjoy this material with your class and let us know how you liked it!
