Pic Brainstorm (alone or pairs)
wild animals pretty etc
Give every student or every second student
a picture (scenic or city pics from the "National
Geographic" are best or choose a subject and use the clipart search box at the bottom of this
page) with a sheet of blank paper attached to the bottom. Students write as many nouns and adjectives as they can in columns on the paper. Rotate the pics a few times.
Model this conversation and perhaps write cues on the board to clarify the use of conjunctions and words for contrast. Also,
be careful of noun-adjective confusion.
write these 4 words on the board:
but however though and
Talk to a student ..hold out the picture
A: What's it like?..........however
the student must use the word "however"
in his or her reply.
B: There are a lot of wild animals. However,
it's really pretty.
Finally let the students walk round.......
