These cards come in handy when your carefully planned lesson comes to a natural end about ten minutes before the bell rings. Simply whip out the pack and have students discuss the topics shown on the front - it's more fun than it sounds!
You can keep things simple and set up a whole-class discussion, using the cards as inspiration, or you can divide learners into groups and let them speed-debate the topics. You can even mix things up a bit using the pictures on the reverse, either way they save you from having to think on your feet, which is nice sometimes! The pictures may be used as a resource in their own right for any classroom activity requiring images, or for oral exams requiring picture descriptions/discussions.
Descriptions of the activities can be found in the image gallery.
