Fun Fruits

A group based point getting game. It works well as a write and race type activitiy.


I haven't updated or used this activity in awhile. If you are going to use it you should take a good look first for dated cultural references and stuff that doesn't suit the new teacher strategies. If nothing else I hope these older materials will give you some ideas for your own materials.

Set up the TV and computer and pass out the worksheets. Explain you'll be practicing 'this is' and 'that is'. Demonstrate the difference with objects that are close and far. Do the first quiz as an example before making groups.

They will see two things in the small white box. One is bigger (closer) and visible. The other is smaller (further) and blacked out. There is a hint for correctly changing the spelling from plural to singular form. This is there because all the vocabulary is in the NEW CROWN textbook but much of it is from pages 9-11 and in the plural form. The hints are not necessary if this is done as a strictly verb activity.

Students must make one sentence and one question, 'This is an apple. Is that a potato?' and bring it to the teacher within a reasonable time limit. They work in groups and each group sends one member to answer the question. Then they wait until all the groups are finished. If they answer correctly they pick a fruit and you click on it to reveal the points they get. I generally have one teacher handle the answer checking and another handling the point fruits. After they've answered to an answer check and move onto the next question. A new student should bring the next answer.
