This is a fun game/activity to promote Oracy in class. There are 100 slides here to use in the game.
I have used it as a starter, a plenary and as a reward to help pupils to work on their use of spoken language, The students love this game and really get into it!
I have also used this in both debate club and public speaking training.
This can be adapted to a particular subject (or topic) or you can add some more words to make it longer.
This is a powerpoint presentation that can be used to stimulate debate and allow the students to explore major world issues and topics.
There are 51 different topics here and these cover popular debating topics (animal rights, immigrants, democracy) and more obscure topics (about junk food and curfews!)
Really useful starter, plenary, tutor time activity, drama activity or in a debating club.
100 starter-style keyword activities covering 20 themes including:
1. Coping Saw,
3. G Clamp,
4. Glue Gun,
6. Junior Hacksaw,
7. Enamelling Kiln,
8. Pillar Drill,
10. Tenon Saw,
17. Sewing Machine,
18. Sewing Needles,
19. Stitch Unpicker,
20. Twist Drill Bit
Each theme has 5 activities (wordsearch, crossword, anagrams, equipment labler (with safety) and alphabet analysers). Some themes have more than one so there's more than 100 altogether.
Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen.
The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
