I hope you enjoyed the latest edition of the News Quiz and didn't find too difficult. Like last year, the follow-up activities come in different formats, most of which can be edited and adapted for your needs. These include drag'n'drop activities on LearningApps, one matching activity on WordWall (Intermediate level only) and 'traditional' worksheets in PDF/editable Google Docs.

Discussion & Lexis

Like last year, Sally Hargreaves has come up with discussion questions containing the chunks from the quiz (highlighted in this colour) and which includes some additional chunks (highlighted in blue). This activity can be used to provide additional encounters with the target lexical items. I've adapted the same idea for the intermediate level with recycled chunks in this colour.
