What's your favourite...?
ESL Possessive Adjectives Activity - Writing, Listening and Speaking - Elementary - 25 minutes
In this intriguing possessive adjectives activity, students play a true or false guessing game about favourites. The students are divided into pairs (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. Students complete the worksheet with their favourites, making five answers true and five false. When the students have finished writing, they take it in turns to ask and answer questions about their favourites using the possessive adjectives 'my' and 'your', e.g. A: 'What’s your favourite place?' B: 'My favourite place is the beach'. The student who asked the question then decides if their partner is lying or telling the truth. The correct answer is revealed and the student makes a note of the answer on their worksheet. Students score one point for each correct guess. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner. Afterwards, students tell a new partner about their previous partner’s favourites using the possessive adjectives 'his' or 'her', e.g. 'Her favourite place is the beach'. 'Her favourite sport isn't tennis, it's badminton', etc.
