ESL students can be stumped by when to use "any" vs. "some". This resource gives them the chance to figure it out for themselves.
Allowing students to discover grammar rules by working together in cooperative learning groups both decreases teacher talk and instills deductive reasoning skills into students. When they can articulate rules into their own words, they own them and will be more like to both remember them and use them correctly.
In this linguistic investigation, students will examine statements and questions to determine the rules for using "some" vs. "any". A practice page with an answer key is included for students to demonstrate their understanding in written form. Please see the preview for specifics.
This activity was designed for high beginning-level adult ESL students.
