Paper Chains – an ELT activity


Not just for Christmas decorations – although why not, if you use festive colours!

Cut up a pile of rectangular pieces of coloured paper – say 15cm x 5cm and write a word on each one, you can use them to revise the grammar or vocabulary of your choice:

  • write an irregular verb on each one – the students/teams who produce a correct phrase using the verb in the past glue the ends together or add it to their chain.
  • Write a variety of words from different lexical groups, students have to make a chain for each group.
  • Write a variety of words, students have to form a link between two words ( they’re both found in the sea/are square…) to, well, form a link between the paper slips.

Then decorate your classroom!
