ESL Family Tree Activity

Our take on the ESL family tree activity is online friendly and actually looks good. No need for the textbook activity that doesn’t work.

You’d think after decades of people teaching English around the world, a textbook would have finally figured out how to make a useable and attractive ESL family tree activity… No bother, we’ve done the work!

Put students in pairs, small groups or let them work individually. Give them some time to read the text and fill in their family trees. Check the work as a class and then display the finished family tree.

Take turns asking your students “What is the relationship between… and…? (as seen at the bottom right of the PDF) as many times as it takes for them to integrate the information.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
