ESL Health and Fitness Activity - Reading, Listening and Speaking - Pre-intermediate - 30 minutes

In this engaging health activity, students discuss and rank ways to keep fit and healthy. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Working individually, students rank ten ways to keep fit and healthy in order of importance, one is the most important and ten is the least important. The students are then divided into pairs. The students take it in turns to read out their rankings to their partner, e.g. 'To keep fit and healthy, you should first exercise or play sport regularly'. Their partner notes down the order in the third column of the worksheet. When everyone has finished, pairs discuss their order and come up with a combined ranking.

Finally, there is a class feedback session to discuss the most and least important ways to keep fit and healthy.
 

Health and Fitness Collocation Dominoes

ESL Health and Fitness Collocations Game - Matching and Speaking Activity - Low intermediate - 20 minutes

In this entertaining teaching activity, students play a game of dominoes where they make health and fitness collocations and then try to use the collocations in sentences. The students are divided into groups of three and each group is given a set of dominoes. The students shuffle the dominoes and deal out six each, leaving the rest in a pile face down. The students then turn over the top domino from the pile and place it face up on the table. The first player tries to make a health or fitness collocation by placing a domino down either before or after the domino on the table. If the player successfully forms a health or fitness collocation, they score a point. For an extra point, the student then tries to make a meaningful sentence using the collocation, e.g. 'At the moment, I'm trying to cut down on the amount of junk food I eat'. The other group members listen and judge the player's sentence. If the sentence demonstrates the meaning of the collocation, the player scores an extra point. The next player then tries to put down one of their dominoes at either end of the domino chain and so on. If a player cannot put down one of their dominoes, they take a domino from the top of the pile, put it down and make a sentence if they can. If there are no dominoes left in the pile, play passes to the next student. When a player has gotten rid of all their dominoes, the game ends. The students then tally up their scores to find the winner. Afterwards, the students can reshuffle the dominoes and play again.

The group members also say what they wrote for their first sentence to help keep the conversation going. When the first item has been discussed, the next student reads out their second sentence and so on. When all the items have been discussed, students share their findings with the class.
