Be + Adjective Walkabout Activity

As native or fluent speakers of English, we use the verb BE all the time, often without even taking note. Beginners, on the other hand, have difficulty with its uses and very irregular forms. I designed this activity as a vocabulary development activity that also gives students practice using the BE verb with adjectives.

House Vocabulary

House Vocabulary Team Race

I first used this activity in a beginning integrated skills course, and my students loved it. Each subsequent time I’ve used it, I’ve had positive reactions from my students. It blends vocabulary, exercise, and competition to create a great activity to throw in and revitalize the class.
