Despite all the technology available in the classrooms (iPads, data show equipment, computer labs, etc…) I still think that drawing, coloring and cutting out are fun. Also, the project below promotes collaboration/ cooperation among students. My Junior students were learning the affirmative, negative and interrogative forms of the verb THERE TO BE. After some significant practice and in order to wrap the lesson up, students were arranged in small groups (3 or 4 tops) and I assigned a different task for each member.
MATERIAL NEEDED: Brown paper, magazines, glue, markers, colored pencils and scissors.
WHAT TO DO:
1) Select and cut out pictures from the magazines;
2) Draw and color a race track on the brown paper;
3) Create the tasks to be performed in the game. (Assisted by the teacher)
4) Paste the cut outs.
Possible tasks to be performed when playing the game:
1) Fill in a blank:
For instance, in one of the squares, you see the picture of a cat on the couch and you read: Is there a cat on the couch? Yes, _____. or: ____________a cat on the couch? Yes, there is.
2) Answer a question:
What is there in the picture?______________.
Are there any cars in the picture?______________.
3) Ask a question:
_______________? Yes, there is.
_______________? No, there aren´t.
4) Correct the mistake.
There is three children in the picture.
There is a dog in the picture?
