Easter Crossword

ESL Easter Crossword - Reading, Spelling, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 20 minutes

In this Easter activity, students complete a crossword by listening to clues and guessing Easter vocabulary. Divide the students into pairs (A and B) and give each student a corresponding worksheet. Explain that both students have the same crossword, but Student A has the words across and Student B has the words down. The students' task is to ask their partner for clues and complete the missing Easter words on their crossword. Student A goes first and asks their partner for a clue to one of the missing words on their crossword, e.g. 'What's 1 down?' Their partner reads out the clue for that Easter word and the other student tries to guess what it is. If the student guesses the word successfully, they write it on their crossword. If not, their partner continues to give more clues until the student is able to guess the word. When Student A has completed their crossword, the two students swap roles and Student B asks for clues. When the students have finished, they check their spelling by comparing crosswords. To make the activity more competitive, you can have each pair compete against another pair to see who can complete the crossword first. You can also have all the pairs compete against each other to see which pair can be the first to finish the crossword.

Easter Fact or Fiction?

ESL Easter Quiz - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

In this insightful Easter activity, students reorder words to make true or false facts about Easter. The students then take part in an Easter quiz to see who can correctly guess which facts are true and which are false. Divide the students into two groups (A and B) and give each student a corresponding worksheet. The students begin by looking at the scrambled sentences on their worksheet, and putting the words in the correct order to create true or false Easter facts. When the students have finished, check the sentences with each group. Next, students pair up with someone from the other group. The students then take it in turns to read the facts to their partner who guesses if they are true or false. For each correct guess, students put a tick. The student with the most correct guesses at the end of the quiz wins.
