London Theatres 1&2 Wordsearch Drama Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

London Theatres 1&2 Wordsearch Drama Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

3 x Wordsearch on the theme of 'London Theatres'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet.

Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, 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. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
