Sports Hidden Picture Game

Sports Hidden Picture Game

Students play a Power Point hidden picture game. A speaking activity using modal verbs for present probability.

Level:  Intermediate

Topic:  Sports

Grammar:  Modal Verbs

Time:  20 minutes

Preparation

  • Prepare the Power Point slides.

Procedure

1

Students get into groups of 4 or 5 people.

2

Show the first Power Point slide and click to remove the first square. The students’ task is to guess what the person is doing in the picture.

3

Allow the students time to discuss the picture in their group. Then, ask each group to take a guess. The first group that guesses correctly can get 5 points.

Remind students to use the correct form of the modal verbs. The continuous form of the verb is used after the infinitive, because the action is happening now.


For example:

He might be playing baseball.

4

If none of the groups guess correctly, then click to remove the second square. Again, ask each group to take a guess. The first group that guesses correctly can get 4 points.

5

Continue removing squares and lowering the number of winnable points until one of the groups gueses correctly.

6

Continue with the remaining slides. The winner is the group with the most points.
