What's included?

Names and numbers. A PowerPoint by shropshire14. Two simple slides ask pupils to identify where Italy is and explain how to ask and answer the question "What is your name?" The next slide introduces numbers from 1 to 12, and a picture quiz tests pupils' knowledge. Split the class into teams for an exciting, competitive atmosphere. The final two slides in the presentation can be printed and given to pupils as worksheets to check their understanding.
