Hi! I teach ESL to grade 4-5-6 students here in Québec city. Here is a little closure activity that is usually a big hit! I call it "Chain Reaction". If the lesson's topic was pets, for example, I start by choosing one student. I tell him/her what my favorite pet is: "My favorite pet is the ferret", then I ask him/her: "What is your favorite pet?" He/she has to answer with a complete sentence and then, choose a student and ask the question, and we go on like this until everyone has had a chance to ask and answer a question. Grade 4 students love it! With older students, you can make the questions more difficult and ask for a larger use of vocabulary.
