This is an activity I found on Facebook and added a few features to like matching a verbally presented sentence to a picture and changed out the gifs that were not operating correctly. Some of the images are of popular characters and are very fun with the students. Feel free to change out the pictures and add characters your students like. I noticed that students attention improved because the pictures were animated.

How I use this activity:

1) Students first describe each picture (3 pictures presented on each slide). I encourage them to expand their response by providing details like who is doing it, what are they doing, and where is it happening, etc.

2) Students are read a verbally presented sentence (it appears if you click space bar) and are asked to match the sentence to one of the pictures.

3) By clicking on the box above you will be shown feedback whether the picture matches the sentence (smiley face is correct and (x) is wrong).


This product was originally created by Vlada Rozengaus and uploaded to the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/greenscreenspeech/ where I downloaded the file and modified the activity.
