Get your students talking about healthy eating with this juicy 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. 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 Fruit Game Cards
(All levels; like - dislike, food vocabulary)
- You can play this game in pairs, with a whole class, or in teams.
- Have one person face their peer(s) while they draw cards and ask the question “Do you like… ?” using the fruit in the card.
- Student in front should answer “Yes, I do / No, I don’t” alternating between telling the truth and lying.
- Partner(s) have three tries to catch their peer lying, or until they’ve gone through all cards (whatever happens first).
- Have students play three or four rounds, to not overdo the activity.
- Correct possible mistakes at the end, anonymously if possible (I heard someone say...)
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!
