Board Game – Follow the Instructions!

This is a game I came up with for a class of 10-11 year olds. It involves some movement, which is great for kids that age. It can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your groups. Don’t forget you’ll need dice and markers!

Board Game – Are you allowed?

This is a board game activity that reinforces the use of the phrase “Are you allowed to…” and the idea of permission.

It requires all the players to speak, and it can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your groups. Don’t forget you’ll need dice and markers!

Iraq & Oil Production – Recommendation

I recently used the “Read a Pie Chart” handout found in lesson 2 here:

Thumbs Up Scholastic News In-depth: Rebuilding Iraq

It took 10-15 minutes to discuss the chart and the questions with a group of lower-level 11 and 12 year olds. It is best if you have a world map, or at least a map of the Middle East to go along with this.

Family Q&A Board Game – Recommendation

I have used the Family Q&A board game available at esl-galaxy.com with great success. It goes well with lessons on family vocabulary and relationships, and students always love a game.

Take a look at it here:

Bill of Rights Worksheet

This goes along with a lesson on the Bill of Rights. The cloze/rebus activity includes the first letter of each correct answer, and the vocabulary list includes translations from English to French.
