Description

Compound words are sometimes easy, and sometimes not. My English language learners sometimes struggle with compound words, especially those that don't make a lot of sense when you examine the individual words. This is a fun activity we do to introduce or review compound words. I project it on the screen (it can be uploaded to Google Drive and used as a Google Slides presentation without issue) and the students use the the two pictures to try and guess what the compound word might be. After they guess a single click (or push of the down arrow) brings up the correct answer and picture. They love it and it's a great introduction and/or review of 15 different compound words.

For more information about this and other compound word activities, see my blog post Compound Words.
