This simple activity works well for all ages and levels.. Although lower levels are best.
Firstly have all students draw either one or two pictures on the board. (Tell them they can draw whatever they want)
Secondly run through the names of the objects on the board. (there are usually some funny ones..)
Thirdly, pair or group your students depending on your class level or size.
Finally, ask your students to write a story including all of the objects on the board.
I have had a lot of success with this activity.. There are various ways in which it can be adapted and used to teach different grammatical structures. The final stories can then be either read out to the class, or posted on the wall etc...
