This is a very engaging and interactive way for students to practice jobs and professions vocabulary in a communicative way. It requires students to speak to everyone in the class in order to complete the task. The activity employs information-gap and jigsaw language teaching techniques to engage student participation.
Each student has pictures of 4 jobs/professions and a sheet with all of the jobs/professions. Students circulate and ask their classmates if their friends do the various jobs and professions and record their name if the answer is YES. There is a vocabulary sheet included as well as detailed set-up directions.
This is a great way to get students talking to everyone in the class and it reinforces the vocabulary through repetition in a meaningful and communicative context.
