Dictionary tasks

20 Sep


Students very rarely want to open a dictionary on their desk so this small activity from Katy Hall and Georgina Hooper encourages students to have a go based on whatever activity, topic or subject that they are currently studying.

You can adapt the words to what’s currently being studied and students can research independently or in pairs using a paper dictionary or web based dictionary. Students can then discuss their findings and evaluate the difficulty of the task as finding things alphabetically is an essential employment skill.
