Usually, lessons that include teaching ESL animals are full of fun and imaginative plays. For today’s lesson, teachers can use “act animal” to teach and review any ESL animal vocabulary with a few related sentences.
Have a student come to the front and ask the student to use the target sentence (such as “I see a …”, “I am a ….” or “I like ….”) to call out an animal. Now the whole class pretends to be the mentioned animal. Encourage everyone to leave their chair and act out. Then a few seconds later stop and ask another student to choose an animal.
act animal Change is very simple and fun to play. You can repeat the game as much as kids are having fun or time allows. Teaching ESL animals includes useful grammars which students can learn using this game such as a/an usage (I see a goat), singular and plural (I like monkeys) so if the level of students matches any of these try to challenge them more.
Using act animal to teach ESL animals would only suit kids under 12 years old. Since this ESL game is an imaginative play, younger kids (ages around 5 years old) enjoy even more
Any class size would be fine for teaching ESL animals using act animal. The whole class is involved pretending an animal so make sure there is enough space for kids to move around.
