The ABC Zoo is not a traditional list of animals that all the learners are familiar with. Our book includes the less well-known relatives of conventional zoo animals and introduces them
in a detailed manner while looking for a place to stay for zorilla. Where is its place in the alphabet? What is it at all?
FOCUS OF THE GAMES:
• getting familiar with animal classes
• listening activity with descriptions of animals
• quiz on comparisons
IN THE CLASSROOM:
Divide the class into two groups and ask them to choose a speaker each. The speaker will have cards with the names of animals on them and one minute to describe as many as he or she can without giving away their names. The group gains a point for every correct answer. Then the second group has a go before the next round. This competition is great for the development of vocabulary revision, listening and speaking skills.
