This paper craft activity is designed to offer some flexibility to teachers and students.
Primary students learn polite family member names and so a worksheet with these is included.
Older students might use the ‘humble’ forms to describe the members of their own families, so a worksheet with these names listed is also included.
Two versions of the HOUSE template are included. Teachers can choose the style which best fits their particular student cohort.
The activity could be used as both a speaking and writing assessment task if desired. It could also be used more as a ‘wind-down’ activity, giving the teacher a chance to do something one-on-one with selected students, while the remainder complete the activity.
Two sentence patterns are used. かぞくは 三人 です。おばあさん と お母さん、と 私 です。
