Everybody knows how to play this game, and it's perfect to work on definitions. You can practise the topic FOOD & DRINKS and adjectives related to them.

I use simple vocabulary because I intend to use it with very young teenagers, too. I have used pictures from Wikimedia Commons and the template from

We continue with a similar activity: a domino.  (DOC / PDF) 

Finally, the students can play Who's who? to practise questions in Present and Past tenses (Is she alive? Was she a writer?)   (DOC / PDF)
