I made this poster using the art at Irasutoya. It can be used in a number of ways. I generally use it as a write and race relay type activity. ALT or JTE will ask the first question 'Who is Mike?' or 'What is Mike doing?' and they will write the answer 'Mike is jogging' or 'Mike is the boy jogging in the park' and bring the answer to a teacher. If it is okay give them the next question. They go back to their group, relay the question, the next student finds the answer and brings it to a teacher.
The names are easily modified if you want fewer western names. I just copied the names off an older poster I used to use. The characters are all uniformly Japanese because that is what the art at Irasutoya looks like.
I've added an additional poster with various famous characters. It is for practicing the present progressive and the simple present tense. What is he doing now? What does he do everyday?
For Reduced Relative Clause I've added the survivor game worksheet.
Survivor Game is played similiar to battleship.
Survivor Game is a pattern practice game. It is played in pairs. It is very similar to Battleship. To demonstrate it is useful to either draw a large copy on the board or print out large copies. Students take turns making sentences using the key language on the grid. When one student makes a sentence both students cross out the intersecting square. This means on your turn you'd make a sentence with an intersecting square that doesn't have a circle. After a time limit or three minutes or so stop the game and see how many of your circles are not crossed out. The student with the most remaining circles is the winner. There are two grids so the game can be played twice.
