Activate your students vocabulary with our VOCABTIVATE activities!


This resource is free with a Total Teacher Access.



You receive a printable PDF + online friendly interactive PDFs for the following school vocabulary activities:

  • Teacher’s pet – students read memories from their school days and tell the class about them;
  • Shattering clichés – students write opinion articles trying to shatter some educational clichés;
  • Adulting boot camp – design a 7-day boot camp for high schoolers with the aim of preparing them for the real world;
  • Homeschooled – a group of like-minded families want to create a homeschool curriculum and they need your help.

Each activity:

  • allows you to practice the vocabulary with a task-based speaking or writing activity;
  • can be used independently, together, or in addition to your own lesson plans;
  • creates opportunities for cooperation and interaction;
  • highlights the theme in an original way;
  • can be used with the vocabulary list found in the downloadable PDF;

Vocabtivates are the perfect tool for:

  • finishing or replacing a lesson plan;

  • getting students to use their existing knowledge in conversation.

Our VOCABTIVATE resources are bundles of activities whose tasks are varied, aesthetic, engaging and ready-to-use.
All you have to do is print and cut out the sheets (or use the online versions!), hand them out to your students
…and it’s game on for hours of class time!
