using the Darwin awards and urban legends
This is a great way to add humor to your class. First I take a darwin award for example Scuba diver and forest fire. If you don,t know it check out the site. I write it in simple English, Cut it into strips and have students put it in the correct order. When they all understand the story they start to laught. You can also read out a darwin award to them and they have the cartoom version of it in the wrong order. So they have to number each cartoon picture in the correct order. For my advanced classes I give each student a Darwin award and they must read it and tell it to their partners. Every ten minutes they have to exchange darwin awards. Great for a laught, Good for vocabulary development.
