Use this describing food domino game as a complement to our describing foods lesson plan or as something to complete your own lesson plan.
This activity functions as a basic domino game you can play with your A2 students, or some ambitions A1’s, to practice describing food.
- Cut out the dominos and shuffle them in a pile.
- Give your students each 4-5 dominoes.
- Students take turns matching the illustrations with relevant words describing food.
- Please note, there are many overlapping pairs, which makes the game much more playable.
- You can play the easy version (students need only associate one of the adjectives with the illustration) or the harder version (they must associate both adjectives with the illustration).
- If there is any doubt, have the class decide if the student has made a legal move!
- A student can play only one domino at a time.
- If a student is blocked, they end their turn by drawing a domino from the pile.
- The first student to get rid of all their dominos wins.
It’s truly a pity we don’t have an online domino game engine that would be easy to program…
This game plays like Taboo.
- Students must describe a food without using any of the words in the box connected to it.
- If someone successfully names the food, then both earn a point.
- Check the box so that it cannot be used again.
