- Each student gets a writing worksheet and one card.
- They simply go around and use the new grammar to find the time and weather in different countries. The key phrases are "What time is it in~ ?" and "How is the weather in~?"
- They write down this information in their worksheets.
I used 3 different weather cards: cloudy, sunny, and rainy. You can add or subtract more.
The updated doc. version also allows for a simplified variation good for low level students:
- Students start the game in pairs one student with worksheet A and one student with worksheet B.
- Start with review flashcards of the weather: sunny, rainy, and cloudy.
- If the students don't know time and numbers well, start by teaching that.
- If the students are reviewing time and numbers, just practice a few examples. You can do this by having a few blank clocks written on the board, or by bringing an actual clock you can manipulate the hour and minute hands on.
- Finish by reviewing the country names.
