Natural Disasters Dominoes and Riddles Activity – for ESL, Kindergarten and Primary Students – Fully Editable Version.
I have a few sets of these with Jobs, fruit, animals, pets, and some holidays and will be releasing more in the coming weeks as they seem quite popular! I use them myself in ESL classrooms and they are a great piece of work for students to take home. Its more than just another worksheet.
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!!
Students are given a board and the picture/description and have to match the description to the disaster picture and glue it to the board. They go horizontal across the top and the bottom and vertically along the sides. this then makes a frame around the centre.
Now the Natural Disaster Pictures and descriptions should be printed on A4, but the page they use to stick them on on has to be A3 so that they fit around the outside!
When you ( or the students) cut out the dominos make sure there is a picture AND a description on the domino ( dominoes have two sides) The description should not match the picture on the domino.
Make sure the students know how to glue them as sometimes they will stick them all at the top. You can use page three on the PowerPoint as a rubric for this to show them what you are looking for, or if you want you can make one first!
Once they have finished, they can complete the centre part of the board think of what they should do if one of these disasters ever happen! (lets hope not!)
Below is the animal dominoes video to show an example of how to put it together for your lessons its the animals version but the idea the same! 🙂
we made a YouTube video to check out to help you 🙂 It is for the Animal Dominoes but the idea is the same.
