Here is a fun true or false weather game that students can play to help them practice weather vocabulary. Give each group of four a set of cards. The students shuffle the weather vocabulary cards and place them face down in a pile on the table. The true or false cards should be placed face down next to the pile. The players take it in turns to turn over a weather vocabulary card and place it face up on the table for everyone to see. Next, the player mixes up the true or false cards face down and then picks one up, without showing it to anyone. The player then makes a true or false statement as indicated on the card using the weather vocabulary on the table. For example, if the weather word was 'sunny', the player might say 'When it's sunny, I like to go to the park'. The other students then each ask a question to the player to determine whether they are lying or telling the truth. After the questions have been answered, the students say whether they think the statement is true or false. The player then reveals the answer. The students who guessed correctly each score one point. The weather vocabulary card is then removed from the game and it's the next player's turn to make a statement. The game continues until all the weather vocabulary cards have been used. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

Weather Tic-Tac-Toe

ESL Weather Game - Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 25 minutes

In this entertaining weather game, students play Tic-Tac-Toe where they make sentences about different weather conditions using adjectives that take an infinitive clause as a complement. Give each pair of students 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.
