How to use this activity
Play as a group. The PDF comes with the game board, the scoring mechanism, and examples of dwellings.
Divide your students into three teams and make a game piece for each team. If you are using ZOOM, you can use the annotate option while screen sharing. I choose the transparent ellipse when I play these board games.
Have the teams each choose one of the dwellings to describe on the left. Place the game pieces on the starting positions. Teams take turns navigating the web of topics moving only between bubbles that are directly connected.
For each bubble, a member of the team describes that particular part of their dwelling. If it is grammatically correct, the team earns a point. If a teammate can add something more, they can earn a second point. The first team to get 10 points wins.
If you are talking about the house or home in your ESL classroom, this activity is a good start. Whether you use it as a warm-up, a time-killer, or an end-of-lesson activity to introduce the next class, it’s a good alternative to the usual conversation prompts in most textbooks.
And just like our other Jukeboxes, it can be used online and offline for groups or one-on-one lessons!
