Sample activities You will find a bank of sample activities which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of activities and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class.
Che tempo fa ? Look at the following weather pictures. Listen to the three different weathers in Italian. Can you choose which one best describes the picture?
Che tempo fa? Fancy dress game. Select a range of props which match the different weather types (e.g. sunglasses, hat and scarf, warm coat, bucket and spade, umbrella etc.) Pupils sit in a circle with all items placed in the middle. One pupil goes to the centre. All pupils chant, “Che tempo fa?” Teacher (or pupil) calls a weather in Italian. Pupil in the centre puts on an item of clothing which matches that type of weather.
Weather snap! Pupils have different weather symbol cards on their desks/in a group Class ask the question “Che tempo fa?” Teacher says a weather type and they have to slap the card (or hold up the correct one!). As they grow in confidence they can be asked to individually choose a weather.
Che tempo fa? Charades Teacher teaches actions to each of the weather phrases e.g. shivering for cold, putting up an umbrella for rain etc. Class chant question “Che tempo fa?” Teacher then says a weather phrase and class do the mime as a group. Pupils then take over saying the weather phrase. Teacher then models miming a weather and pupils have to guess which one it is. Pupils then mime for others in class.
