Help your students describe clothes and accessories with this set of 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. Incorporating games in your classroom 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.

Fashion Show (Beginner, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate - Present Continuous):
- This game is a variation of Pictionary that you can play with the class divided into teams.
- Shuffle the cards and hold the deck. You can use the word cards, the image cards, or both.
- One student from the first team will come to the front and pick three cards from the deck. Then, they will have 30 seconds to draw a person on the board who is “wearing” the three pieces of clothing or accessories that appear on the card.
- When the time is up, the student turns to their team and asks: “What is he/she wearing?”
- The team can talk amongst themselves for 10-20 seconds to come up with a single answer.
- The team will say their answer and get a point for every item they guess correctly.
- A: (Draws a woman wearing a hat, a dress, and boots) What is she wearing?
- B: She’s wearing a hat, a dress, and high heels!
- A: Those aren’t high heels! They are boots. (2 points)
- The team with the most points wins.
