Jobs Guessing Game

This is a fun but competitive activity I made to practise jobs vocabulary with my 9-10 year olds from the OUP course Incredible English level 4, unit 2 (which are teacher, dancer, astronaut, artist, scientist, policeman, pilot, doctor, actor, pirate, footballer, firefighter). There are three clues for each job which I cut up and put in envelopes, along with a picture flashcard of the job. The children took turns to come and read out a clue to the others. They all had the opportunity to guess the job after one, two or three clues, gaining 3, 2 or 1 points accordingly for a correct guess. To involve them all I had them write their guess on a whiteboard and hold it up for me to read. Once they guessed the job, they couldn't guess that job again, so they had to think carefully about the clues. Then I revealed the picture and elicited the name of the job. This can be done as a whole class, group or pairs activity. An extension/homework activity could be for them to write their own clues for a job of their choice and have their classmates guess. I hope it's useful and saves you time.
