If possible, bring some objects connected with doing particular sports: a skipping rope, a swimsuit, a basketball, a toy bike, toy skates etc. Make sure you have sets of dice and pieces for each group. If you don't have enough pieces, you can use buttons or some other small objects instead.Procedure: 1.Tell the children that they are going to play a board game during today's lesson. Explain that this game will be about sports. Elicit which sports they know and which sports they like playing (L1). Try to guide them towards summer sports.2.Introduce the new vocabulary. Depending on teaching aids, show the children a basketball, a skipping rope, a kite, roller skates, a bike and a swimsuit. While showing the objects name the corresponding sports. Drill the vocabulary. Tell the pupils to repeat the words loudly, quietly and then in a funny way.3.Ask questions individually. Can you play basketball? Can you ride a bike? Do you like flying a kite? Do you like swimming? If children have problems with remembering the meaning of the words, help them by showing pictures or acting out the given sport.4.Ask children to sit at the table. Divide them into the groups of 4-5. Distribute the worksheets, dice and pieces. Explain the rules of the game: every time they stand on a picture of a sport activity, they have to ask the next person a question e.g.: Can you swim? The person must answer Yes/No.You can also try to revise numbers, while throwing the dice: a child count out loud the number of the squares he/she has to move. Extension/ Follow-up: Tell the children that one of them will mime one sport and the rest of them will have to guess the name of the sport activity. Every child must take his/her turn, otherwise there will be an argument. If children can think of some other sport activities, accept that and provide the kids with an extra vocabulary practice when needed. Strona 1
