4 Pictures 1 Word ESL Game TEFL Kids English
ESL 4 Pictures 1 Word is a simple activity for lower level young learners (8+) and teens. Due to the popularity of the last Four Picture One Word post, I have made a second round for your classes to enjoy. This is level two and has some more challenging words for your class to discover. For those who have not tried this game before, students look at four pictures that are connected by one word. They must guess the word.  Activity Time:   10 + Materials required: Powerpoint presentation below.  Skills practiced: Speaking, listening. Level: Kids, teens and adults beginners + Method 1. Split the class into teams. Groups of two and three are best.
2. Explain the game to the students. Tell them that they are going to see four pictures. The four pictures are connected by one common word. In their groups, they must decide what the word is. To make sure that they understand, try this example.

3. Now begin the game. For each correct answer, each team gets one point. If both teams guess the correct answer, they both get the point. To avoid any problems, ask the teams to write their answer before they say it. Don’t let students shout the answer. If you need to, deduct points to deter shouting out answers.
