This is a good first day activity if you have a bunch of
simple pictures on file, as many ESL teachers do. After
each student has told the class a few things about
himself/herself, have him or her choose a picture
from an assortment of 15-20 pictures. The class has
3-5 guesses to try to figure out why the person chose
the picture. If no one guesses correctly, then the
student explains it. Some pictures I've used with
this: a car, a ring, a TV, a baby, a bird... It's fine
for the pictures to be simple because they will add
more personalized meanings to it.
