Their partner reads out the clue for that weather 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 the students have finished, they check their spelling by comparing crosswords.
 

Weather Tic-Tac-Toe

ESL Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 25 minutes

In this entertaining activity, students play games of Tic-Tac-Toe where they make sentences about different weather conditions using adjectives that take an infinitive clause as a complement. The students are divided into pairs. Each pair is given a weather grid and a set of adjective cards. The students shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile on the table next to the weather grid. The aim of the game is to get three weather words in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Students take it in turns to pick up an adjective card from the pile and choose a weather word from the grid, e.g. cold/important. The student then tries to make a sentence using the weather word in the grid and the adjective with the target structure, e.g. 'When it's cold, it's important to wear warm clothes'. If the student manages to make an acceptable sentence, he or she marks the square in pencil with an O or X. If not, play passes to the other student. Students continue in this way until one of them gets three-in-a-row. If no one manages to get three-in-a-row, the student with the most squares wins. The winning student receives a point. The students play several rounds, erasing the symbols written in pencil from the grid after each round. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.
