Jobs and Occupations Dominoes and Riddles Activity – for ESL, Kindergarten and Primary Students Free Version
This is a whole class activity that can be done in groups or pairs. I love doing this as its a real chance for students to engage with their work and for the teacher to target help where it is needed. A self directed learning win!!
This is a whole class activity that can be done in groups or pairs.
Students are given a board and the fruit/description and have to match the description to the fruit and glue it to the board
They go horizontal across the top and the bottom and vertically along the sides.
When you ( or the students) cut out the dominoes make sure there is a picture AND a description on the domino ( dominoes have two sides)
Make sure the students know how to glue them as sometimes they will stick them all at the top.
Once they have finished, they can complete the centre part of the board and describe the jobs they can see and the job they would like to do. ( everyone says YouTuber!)
I will add a started version at the bottom to give a rubric of sorts. ( the board should be printed on A3 and the dominoes on A4. )
I love doing this activity, it can be totally self directed by the students and they really practice reading and comprehension skills from this. It is a whole class activity that can be done in groups, pairs or individual. I much prefer giving it as an individual task so students have their own work to present and take home.
I have a video guide for you, which as this can be a little confusing i suggest you at least skip through it, but i will put the main details below as well.
