How to use this activity in your offline class:
- Tell your students you are going to talk about typical activities for each season of the year.
- Ask your students if their habits and behaviors change based on the season.
- Then, put the names of the four seasons on the table and place the cut out activities around them. The group associates the activities with the seasons by placing the verbs in the best box.
- Explain the more difficult verbs if needed.
- In order for the activity to last longer than 3 minutes, have the students justify each response, for example, I prefer doing the housework in spring because I like to clean my house after winter, and have them ask their peers questions, for example, Why do you get your hair cut in winter? For me, I like it when my hair is long because it’s cold out!
