I introduce vocabulary to students with pictures in order to eliminate English (and thus the need to try to translate everything!). This is the PowerPoint that I created for animals. It is quite comprehensive. Here is what is included:
whale, squirrel, ox, donkey, kangaroo, camel, zebra, horse, goat, tiger, lion, bear, ram, lamb, sheep, bunny, dolphin, elephant, seal, giraffe, wolf, raccoon, monkey, bull, turtle, fox, puppy, lizard, cow, calf, pig, mouse, rat, toad, frog, deer (two words), mule, snake (two words)
eagle, ostrich, owl, stork, duck, turkey, peacock, penguin, rooster, cock, parrot, dove, vulture, raven, canary, cardinal, robin, seagull, swan, goose
bee, spider, wasp, worm, ant, butterfly, fly, mosquito, caterpillar
flock, herd, beehive, honeycomb, bird’s nest, to milk (a cow)
Note: There is a handout that accompanies this PowerPoint if you would need it. It is listed separately. With this PPT, students can use them like flashcards to test their mastery of the words. Students also print out these pictures and make flashcards with the pictures.
The teaching duration of 45 minutes is if you go over it in class, practicing the pronunciation and working with the words in context.
Finally, with these pictures there are so many activities you can do that are engaging! (100mil pirámide, for example)
