Enrichment Activities

Describe the Picture Divide students into partners
One partner describes a picture to the other partner as best they can The one who was listening is then asked to draw what was described to them When done, both share their pictures and discuss how the description could have been better Examples for use: FFA emblem, animal breeds, plant ID

Give One, Get One Have students divide a sheet of paper into two columns One column says “Give One” the other says “Get One” In teams, students brainstorm “Give ones” When a team finishes filling the “Give one” column they all stand When all students are standing, each student puts a hand up, and pairs with someone who is not a teammate Students in pairs give an idea, then “Get one” from their partner and write in the “get one” column Students continue to rotate partners until they have filled up their “Get one” column They return to their teams to review the “Get ones” Great for reviewing

Fan-n-Pick Played with premade question cards
Teams with students numbered 1-4 #1 fans the cards, #2 picks, #3 answers, #4 praises Students then rotate roles

Mix-n-match Make cards with one set that contains vocabulary words and another set with the definitions Pass out to students randomly Students mix, then find find partners with the matching card Can also be used with plant or animal ID Example: Set of cards with the name of the plant and another set with pictures of the plants Students mix and find their partner

Jigsaw Problem Solving
Each teammate has part of an answer Teammates must put together their answers to solve the problem

Find the Fib Everyone writes 3 statements #1 stands, reads statements
2 true/1 false #1 stands, reads statements Teammates discuss, write answer, reach consensus If their answer is correct, the person quizzing claps If their incorrect, the student quizzing corrects them and explains Students rotate

Corners Teacher announces what the corners mean
Students think, write choices Students go to corner Students must justify as a group why they chose that corner Each corner has a spokesperson that can report to the class why they chose that corner

Brainstorm Students are numbered 1-4 in groups Teacher gives problem
Individual think time is given Teacher calls “brainstorm”. Students then come up with a group answer. Teacher calls a random number to answer

Pair Work Student 1 works while student 2 watches
Student 2 coaches Student 1 Students switch Then the pair shares with another pair at their table and compare and discuss answers

Showdown #1 Flips over card with problem/question and read it out loud
All answer on scratch paper When all are done answering they put their pens/pencils down #1 then calls out “Showdown” and students hold up their answers to compare #1 leads in praise/help Pass deck to #2 and repeat

Rotate

Color Coded Coop Cards Give pretest over material to be memorized after instruction Learners create flash cards on missed items. Each teammate uses a different color card Play Flashcard Game in pairs with 5 cards at a time. Play 3 rounds. Switch roles after each round. Round 1-give maximum clues Round 2-Fewer clues Round 3-No clues Give practice test Do initial improvement scoring Play Flashcard Game on missed items Give final test

Apple Toss Apple Pass: Have all Ss sit in a circle.  Use a fake apple and toss it to one S.  But you must say one English word as you pass.  The S then throws to another S and says a different English word.  If the student you threw it to drops it, he/she is out.  And the game keeps going until you have one winner.  It can be played with different categories, such as Food, Animals, Etc.

Badminton Badminton: Good for reviewing target vocabulary (words or communicative expressions). Set a "court" into the classroom by placing a skip-rope tied up to two chairs. Make two small teams (the other Ss can be the crowd and or challengers). Give each S a flyswatter ("Racket"). Inflate a balloon (this will be the ball). Remember: the younger the Ss, the bigger the balloon must be (slower).  Decides who serves and for every point one team scores, have the opposite team call out the flashcard or picture card by the T shown.

Explosion Give the students a topic and an object to pass around.  Each student has to say a word in that topic (e.g. food - apple, cake etc.) before the time runs out. If the time limit ends the student left holding the object loses.

Hangman The old favorite.  Very good for reviewing vocab from past lessons.

Shirt Game Divide the children into two teams and give a man's shirt to each team.  Be sure each shirt has the same amount of buttons down the front.  At the signal, the first person on each team puts on the shirt and buttons all of the buttons down the front.  The one who is buttoned-up first gets to answer the question you ask.  Of course a question equals points.  If the answer is incorrect, the person from the other team gets a chance to answer.

Time Bomb you need a timer (such as an egg timer) for this exciting game.  Set the timer, ask a question and then throw it to a S.  S/he must answer and then throw the timer to another S, who in turn answers and then throws it to another S.  The S holding the timer when it goes off loses a life.  This can also be done with categories (e.g. food, animals, etc.)

Tornado Supplies: flashcards (pictures or questions on one side, numbers on the other), 'Tornado Cards' (flashcards with numbers on one side and a tornado picture on the other).  Stick the numbered cards on the board with either pictures or questions on the back (depending on the age group) facing the board. Also include 6 Tornado cards and mix them in with the picture cards. Students then choose a number card. If they answer the question correctly then their team can draw a line to draw a house. If they choose a tornado card then they blow down their opposing teams part drawing of a house. The first team to draw a house wins.
