Speaking and Listening Challenge - L2/GCSE - The Sinking Ship
PLEASE Leave feedback - I'd love to know how these resources work for you!

A fab powerpoint which walks the class through a series of discussion on a scenario - a sinking ship full of passengers. Who will you decide to keep hold of? Who will have to leave? Who is most useful? With passengers ranging from a doctor to a small child, there is plenty to talk about.
This activity has worked well with students from 14-40, and allows you to provoke various areas of speaking and listening discussion guidelines. There are slides which are useful to print, but can be done with no resources.
