Revising vocabulary -a speaking activity

I often struggle to find new and interesting ways to revise vocabulary, so I was pleased when this activity went well in class today.

After having learnt some beach vocabulary in the previous class, today I showed the class the picture below.

We studied it and talked about everything we could see, as well as recycling some prepositions to place things.

Then I hid the image and gave them a sheet of paper. In pairs they had to reconstitute the image together.

They enjoyed the challenge and hardly realized it was in fact a vocabulary revision exercise. I’ll be using this again with other word groups and pictures.
