Preparing this resource


Print enough sets for 1 set between 2 – 4 learners, single sided
Cut up into individual pictures and words

#TopTips
Print or copy onto card to make the cards last longer so you can use them again
(and again, and again…)
If you are printing more than one set, print each set onto a different colour card to
help you to easily organise your sets

Ideas for using this resource


1. Use the pictures to elicit different types of food and drink
2. Get learners to match the pictures with words
3. Put the words and/or pictures into alphabetical order
4. Sort the words and/or pictures into categories, such as:
likes and dislikes
healthy and unhealthy
food groups (i.e. fruit, vegetables, protein, carbohydrate etc)
then tell the rest of the group about their categories (i.e. ‘I like bananas and
crisps but I don’t like tomatoes’)
5. Get the learners to make posters or displays with the pictures and labels
6. Play the memory game. Give each learner a picture or word depending on
their level and start a story – ‘I go to the shop and I buy ….’ Learners in turn
repeat all the items others have said and add the item in their picture or named
on their card.
