Wouldn’t you just love to take off and go fishing and leave the cares of the world behind? And think of what you’d catch. But have you thought about it from the fish’s perspective? Students can answer some of these questions by choosing from a range of images in a given set and then selecting from the words provided that have been divided into nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. In this way, the learning of both grammar and vocabulary has been placed in context as students attempt to generate their own story. Here the excitement of bringing in the big catch is evoked – or is it simply a fisherman’s tale of the one that got away?
