Next, students use the picture to complete a crossword and clues with animal names, adding 's' if there is more than one animal. Students then use picture prompts to complete a shopping conversation with this, that, these or those.

Demonstrative Adjectives Board Game

ESL This, That, These, Those Board Game - Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this demonstrative adjective board game, students practice making statements and questions with this, these, that and those. Give each group of three or four a copy of the game board, a set of this and that cards, a set of these and those cards, a dice and counters. Have the students shuffle each set of cards separately and place them on either side of the game board. The players then take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When a player lands on a square, they pick up the top card from the corresponding pile and place it face up for everyone to see. The player then makes a statement or question (as indicated) about the picture on the card using the demonstrative adjective shown in the square. For example, if a player lands on the 'statement' and 'this' square and picks up a picture of a house, the player might say 'This house has two floors'. If the square read 'question', the student might say 'Is this house for sale?' Players can say any statement or question as long as it uses the demonstrative adjective correctly and corresponds to the picture in some way. The other students listen and judge the player's statement or question. If the statement or question correctly uses the demonstrative adjective and corresponds to the picture, the player stays on the square. If not, the player goes back to their previous square. The card is then placed at the bottom of the pile and play passes to the next student. The first player to reach the finish wins the game.
