This is a simple, effective and engaging activity to introduce and revise vocabulary. It’s also a good activity to practise describing pictures using language for speculation, a task students face in many speaking exams. This is how I use these pictures with older children, teenagers and adults.
1. Choose a set of words you want to introduce or revise.
2. Take a close-up photograph that shows only part of the image.
3. Take another photograph that shows the whole image.
4. Arrange the students in pairs or 3s.
