ESL EFL Reading and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 25 Minutes
In this engaging teaching activity, students discuss and rank the best ways to keep fit and healthy. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Working individually, students rank ten ways to keep fit and healthy in order of importance. One is the most important and ten is the least important. The students are then divided into pairs. The students take it in turns to read out their rankings to their partner, e.g. 'To keep fit and healthy you should first exercise or play sport regularly'. Their partner notes down their order in the second column of the worksheet. When everyone has finished, pairs discuss their order and come up with a combined ranking. Pairs then join up with another pair and compare rankings, looking for similarities and differences. Finally, there is a class feedback session to discuss the most and least important ways to keep fit and healthy.

In this discussion activity, students learn and practice expressions and idioms relating to health and fitness. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Students complete sentences about health and fitness on the worksheet with their own ideas and information that is true for them. The students are then divided into groups of four.

Group members respond using the expressions at the bottom of the worksheet and by asking follow-up questions. The other group members also say what they wrote for their first sentence to help keep the conversation going.
