There's a Zoo in The Loo
|elementary school - junior high school first year||to provide number listening practice, and help understand and practice "What is it", and answer, "It's a ___".||"What is it?"||20 mins||Pairs of work sheets|
Have the students form pairs, and distribute the work sheets. If there is an odd number of students in the class, the ALT can make up the shortfall. Before giving out the sheets, explain that they are a secret, and not to be shown to the student's partners or friends.
Students take turns asking questions like, "Is there a penguin/monkey on the bed?", and replying, "No, there isn't. There isn't a penguin on the bed, there is a snake/monkey", or simply, "Yes, there is. There's a monkey on the bed". This questioning continues until the students have located all ten animals. At that time they can come to you, verbally present their findings, and receive an appropriate reward.
