Activities for Adolescents
Scavenger Hunts are fun, memorable activities that can be carried out with EL students of all ages, there are thousands of ideas on line. The idea is for them be separated into groups, go outdoors searching for a list of "things"** written on a piece of paper, at the end, they must "report" what they did using simple past as the main grammar subject to be focused on:
e.g. **Find a restaurant napkin,
When Ss come back to the classroom they must write a report on what, where, when, how they found (using simple past) all the "things".
They’re easy to create and can be designed according to students’ ages, levels, the number of students, etc.
