English Communication Activities (SURVEY) are activities for practicing English in a "real" situation (as opposed to call/response, etc.). The survey aspect involves each student collecting information from other students. The activity can be completed using students' real-world answers or answers given to them by the teacher (using cards that are included). There is also a PowerPoint presentation to further increase motivation for the students. The PowerPoint in this activity is used as a supplement and conduct the activity as a guessing game; alternatively it can be used as a supplement to a whole-class survey activity.
Can You Draw SURVEY is an activity in which each student can either have a pre-determined skill (given a card by the teacher) or report a real skill they have. The students ask classmates' names, how to spell the names, and their skill, all of which they record on their worksheet.
The PowerPoint presentation is a choice of skills, which when clicked upon cue an animation of that skill. While fairly simple as a concept, the students really enjoy watching the animation as a reward for guessing the correct skill during the whole-class activity.
This activity can be completed in a number of different ways: progressively-large groups, whole-class survey, or whole-class guessing game.
The focus of learning is the grammar patterns "Can You ___?" and "Yes, I can," or "No, I can't," and the skills dance, sing, draw, and swim.
This product includes a worksheet, an interactive PowerPoint file that includes animations for the skills (clicking on the pictures cues animations of those skills); a PowerPoint file to demonstrate how to group students; a TXT file with explanations and examples for teaching; and a board layout for beginning the lesson.
The material included in the sample includes the PowerPoint files (the skills PPT only includes one animation; the detail level of pictures has been reduced for a smaller file size), the single-sided worksheet (not the double-sided option), and blank cards.
