TEACHER INFORMATION

National Standards for Foreign Language Learning


COMMUNICATION
Communicate in Languages Other Than English
Standard 1.1: Students engage in conversations, provide and obtain information, express feelings and emotions, and exchange
opinions
Standard 1.2: Students understand and interpret written and spoken language on a variety of topics
Instructions:
After teaching or reviewing adjectives for describing appearance or personality, plan to have students play the game
below.
In order to prepare for the game, print off one set of the celebrity cards for each group of students in the class (in
color if possible)
Laminate the celebrity cards, and cut them out.
Put each set of cards in an envelope.
Make copies of the helpful expressions sheet and celebrity list for each student in the class.

Divide students into groups of four.


Give each group an envelope.
Give each student a helpful expressions sheet and the list of celebrities.

Go over the helpful expressions sheet and model pronunciation for students.
Choose one or two celebrities and model how to play the game. Describe them in the target language for students, and
have the students guess the name of the celebrity from the list.

Have students begin playing the game.


Have the students take equal turns by passing the envelope around the group.
One student will begin by drawing a celebrity card out of the envelope, and describing him/her in the target language.
The other students in the group must wait until the person describing has given at least 2 clues before they may begin
guessing.
Each student has a limit of 3 guesses per celebrity so they must guess carefully.
When someone guesses correctly the describer will give the celebrity card to that student, and the group will cross
that celebrity off their list.
The describer will then pass the envelope to the next student.

At the end of the game, the student with the most celebrity cards will be the winner!
If there is a tie, have one student that is not a winner describe one more person to the students who are tied. Whichever
student guesses correctly is the winner.
You can decide how long you want students to play based on how much time you have. They could play for 20
minutes or 45 minutes.
When groups finish playing have them complete the celebrity writing assignment as classwork or homework.
