Body Image and Appearance - Kick Me Vocabulary Game

11,741 views

Published on

Aim: To practice words related to body image and appearance
Interaction: Whole class (any, preferably at least 3)
Exercise type: Matching, filling in the gaps
Language: B2 or C1
Time: 15-20 minutes
Materials: Post-it notes or strips of paper with tape; a handout with a chart for each of the students
Procedure: 1. The vocabulary used in the activity is also used in the first 90 seconds of a very short teaser of the Illusionists film which can be found here:

If you choose to show the first 90 seconds of the teaser to your students ask them the following questions before starting the activity:
1. What is the film about?
2. Do you think the film approves of undergoing plastic surgery for vanity?
3. What alarming statistics are mentioned in the teaser?
4. What do these numbers refer to:


5. Take 12 post-it notes and write the following words on them. Each word on a separate post-it note:

Celebrity-obsessed
Unattainable
Perception
Overweight
Overestimate
Commodification
Repugnant
Rebellious
Prejudice
Epidemic
Pursuit
To take the central role

You can also use strips of paper and tape instead of post-it notes.
6. Stick a post-it note to the back of each of the students without telling your students which word they have.

If you have less than 12 students, some students may end up with two post-it notes on their backs.

Alternatively, if you have very few students (3 or 4), you can choose to hide words around the classroom (under the chairs, under the desks) or stick them on the walls around the classroom.

If you choose this option, then in the third column of the chart the students will need to write down the name of the object on which they found the word and its location in the classroom.

If you have more than 12 students, then repeat some of the words, so that each of the students has a post-it note on their backs.

7. Give each student a handout with a chart.

If you have a very large classroom, you may choose to give one handout for two or three students and allow them to work in a group.

8. Each of the students needs to walk around the classroom, looking at the backs of other students and the words that they have.
9. The students are allowed to communicate only in English.
10. Once a student finds on someone’s back a word that fits one of the gaps in the chart, the student writes down this word and the name of the student who is wearing this word.
11. The first student to complete the chart correctly wins and gets an extra point.
12. If you have several students filling in one handout then the groups that fills in their handout first wins.

Have Fun!
