Aim: To practice the use of relative clauses (who, which, that, when and where)
Interaction: Individually or in groups
Exercise type: Filling in the gaps
Time: 10-15 minutes
Materials: Slideshow, 5 pieces of paper for each student, markers
Procedure: 1. Give each student 5 pieces of paper.
2. Instruct the students to write down a different relative pronoun (that, who, which, when or where) on each of the 5 pieces of paper that they have. Recommend the students to use colorful markers and write in big letters that are visible from a distance.
3. You will be showing your students slides with sentences on them. Each sentence is missing a relative pronoun.
4. Display the slide with the first sentence on it. Allow some time for your students to read the sentence and to come up with a missing relative pronoun. The students need to raise the paper with a suitable relative pronoun up in the air as soon as possible.
5. In some cases two variants are possible. If this is the case, the students need to raise two pieces of paper.
6. The first three students to raise correct papers get an extra point.
7. The person with the top score at the end of the game wins!
