· name the rooms in their school
· identify the rooms in their school
1. Take pictures of the rooms around your school. Print out copies of the pictures and flash cards for each group in the class
1. Hold up each picture and ask the pupils to identify which room in the school it is. Ask a range of pupils to do this either individually or in groups.
2. Hold up the flash cards and ask the pupils to read the names of rooms aloud. Ask a range of pupils to do this either individually or in groups.
3. Split the pupils into small groups of three or four. Give each group a set of pictures and flash cards and ask them to match them on their desk.
4. Ask each group to hold up one pair and get the other groups to say whether they are correct or not.
5. As a class, walk around the school. At each room stop and ask the pupils to identify verbally which room it is. Then ask them to find the corresponding picture and flash card and hold them up.
Stick the pictures on the board, ask each group to come up and paste the flash cards underneath them in the correct order.
Give each pupil in the class either a picture card or flash card. Ask them to find another member of the class who has the matching word or picture.
For more advanced pupils:
Give them only the picture cards or flash cards and ask them to either write the names or draw the pictures themselves.
If your school has a camera you can ask the pupils to take pictures of each room as you walk around or you can give them the name of a room and the pupils have to go and take a picture of it.
The matching game group work element of this lesson can be adapted for a number of different lessons.
