An extension of gap fill around the room. Instead of a matchup on a sheet, you could get everyone out of their seats with a treasure hunt. Hide a lot of TL words around the classroom and have students hunt for the words they need. This could be used with a gap fill, reading comprehension questions, matchup activities…
Before doing this activity I would recommend spending a few minutes going over the rules of the game with the students to avoid your room being torn apart! My rules are:
- Only one person per team out of seat at once.
- Don’t move the words you find.
- You don’t need to touch anything to find the words.
- The words are not hidden on or behind my desk, inside cupboards/drawers/books.
