Animal Alphabet Relay



.Test your ESL class on how well they know the English names of different animals with this fun classroom activity

.Begin by writing each letter of the alphabet on the whiteboard/blackboard and splitting the class into groups of 4 to 6 students

.Explain that one member of each team will come to the front and say the name of an animal while erasing the letter it begins with
         

.For example, if the first team says "tiger" then they erase the letter 't' and other animals beginning with 't' such as turtle can't be chosen

A member of the next team will then do the same, and so on until a team can't think of the name of an animal that begins with one of the remaining letters. The last team remaining wins

Make sure as many students as possible have a turn coming to the front and saying the name of animal and keep an eye out for students using books or other resources who are trying to get an unfair advantage

To speed things up a little you could let students erase not only their starting letter but also one more, which definitely makes things more difficult for the teams that follow afterwards
