Happy Families

ESL EFL Listening and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this fun teaching activity, students play a Happy Families card game to practice possessive nouns. The students are divided into groups of four. Each group is given a set of cards, which they shuffle and deal out evenly. Each card contains a picture of an object and the name of the person who the item belongs to. There are also three small pictures at the bottom, which are the other items the student needs to collect to complete the set. Students collect cards by taking it in turns to ask another group member for an item belonging to the set they want to collect, e.g. 'Do you have / Have you got Joshua's tennis racket?' If the group member has the card, they reply 'Yes, here you are' and give it to the student. The student must then give the group member one of their unwanted cards in return, so students always have five cards. If the group member doesn't have the card, they reply 'No, sorry' and play passes to the next student. Students continue in this way until someone has collected a set of four cards. That student wins the round and scores a point. The cards are then shuffled and redealt and the game starts again. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
