Quiz-Quiz-Trade template

Quiz-Quiz-Trade template

Template for the popular 'Quiz-Quiz-Trade' activity. Students each have a small piece of paper/card with a phrase in TL and its translation underneath. Students mill around the room, when they ‘bump’ into someone student A will say their phrase in TL and student B has to translate (quiz). The same happens with student B’s card (quiz). If both students translate each other’s card correctly they trade, hence the quiz-quiz-trade. To add an element of competition, ask the students to count the amount of times they exchanged and give a prize / raffle ticket / house point to the winner.

Dice-rolling conversation - Pairwork template

Dice-rolling conversation - Pairwork template

Give the students a gap-fill text with 10 gaps in it (A to I). Of course, this can be more or fewer gaps – just remember to adjust the A to I in the table. In each gap in the text, write a letter (A to I). Along the corresponding row in the table, give 6 alternatives to go in that gap. Pupils then choose one by rolling a dice. When the student reaches the gap, they roll a dice and say/write the corresponding word.

Follemathiques template

Follemathiques template

Place a picture in each square. Instead of saying “2 + 3 = 5”, say the picture in squares 2, 3 and 5 (e.g. “un chien plus une souris égalent un chat”). Make these sums as difficult or as easy as you like. If you’re going to do a more challenging sum, encourage the pupils to make notes (of the numbers, not the pictures – it’s quicker!).
