ESL Collective Nouns Worksheet and Game - Reading, Writing and Listening - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 30 minutes

In this fun collective nouns activity, students complete a worksheet to practice collective nouns and then use the nouns in a game of bingo. Give each student a copy of the worksheet. Students begin by matching words to one of six collective nouns, writing the words in a corresponding box. In the next exercise, students complete a set of phrases with collective nouns. After the students have completed the worksheet, they practice the collective nouns by playing a game or games of bingo. Give each group of five a set of four bingo cards and a set of caller cards. One student takes on the role of the bingo caller and takes the caller cards, shuffles them and places them face down in a pile. The other students take a bingo card each. The bingo caller picks up the top card from the pile and reads out the collective noun to the group, without showing anyone the card, e.g. flock. If the collective noun corresponds to a word on a student's bingo card, the student writes the collective noun in the space (e.g. a flock of birds) and crosses out the square. The first student to cross off all 12 squares shouts 'Bingo'. That student then reads the phrases on their bingo card to the group for confirmation. If the answers are correct, the student wins the game. If not, play continues. Students can play several rounds if need be, giving other students the chance to be the bingo caller.
