L'environnement (Vocabulaire de base) - Jeu de  correspondance

L'environnement (Vocabulaire de base) - Jeu de correspondance

This game is a classic game of matching cards. There are 40 word cards with their corresponding 40 picture cards. I use it to introduce the new vocabulary through inquiry, asking the students to match the words to the pictures, with the help of cognates, previous knowledge, group or pair work etc. I usually split the students into groups and give each group a set of cards, as competition motivates them. It is a good idea to print each set on different colored paper, to prevent the sets from mixing. If you do not have colored paper at hand, you could also mark the back of the cards with a different colored marker or highlighter BEFORE you laminate them. INSTRUCTIONS Print the document one-sided, laminate and cut out. Give all the cards to the students and ask them to pair up pictures and words. More ways of using the cards: As a memory game - In small groups or pairs, students arrange the cards face down in rows and columns. They take turns in turning over 2 cards until they find a pair. They get to keep the pairs they find and count them at the end of the game. Whoever has more pairs, wins the game. In pairs, students take any 4 to 6 picture cards and they take turns in showing one card each to their partner and eliciting the word for it. Students who say the correct word, keep the card and count them at the end of the game. Whoever has more cards, wins the game. When they finish with their cards, they can swap their cards with another pair’s cards. Similar to Spoon game - Deal all the cards to the students. The objective is to make as many pairs as possible without showing your cards to anyone. At the teacher’s signal, students put down one card to their left and then take the card on their right. When they make a pair, they put it down and continue until they get rid of all their cards.Whoever finishes the cards first, wins. The teacher deals all the word cards to the students and keeps the picture cards in a pile. Teacher shows the picture cards one by one and elicits the word. If the student who has that card knows the word and says it out loud, they take the card to make a pair. If they don’t, the teacher puts the picture card away. Students count their pairs at the end of the game. Whoever has more pairs, wins the game. This can be done vice versa, too, with the teacher dealing the picture cards and keeping the word cards.

Trapdoors to revise topics of schools, future plans and global dimensions (higher and foundation for this).

I hope it helps :)
