There is no Frigate like a Book - Emily Dickinson

Group Communication Activity


These are a few of our favorite things...

Looking for something to do?  Here's a fun communication activity you can do in pairs or small groups.

♦First, create a group of no more than 3 people, and spin the wheel to select your category.

  • Our 5 favorite authors
  • Our 5 favorite record albums
  • Our 5 favorite books
  • Our 5 favorite music videos
  • Our 5 favorite songs
  • Our 5 favorite singers
  • Our 5 favorite T.V. shows                          
  • Our 5 favorite movies
  • Our 5 favorite scientists
  • Our 5 favorite YouTube channels
  • Our 5 favorite actors
  • Our 5 favorite things to do on the weekend
  • Our 5 favorite meals
  • Our 5 favorite vacation destinations

♦Once you have your category, work together in English to select your top 5 favorites of that category, and rank them in order from 1 to 5 (1 being the best).

♦After you have all reached a consensus, prepare a multi-media presentation of your list for your classmates. This is where you get to be creative, use PowerPoint, Prezi, Google Slides or other presentation software and go crazy!  You could even create a poster - real or even virtual with Padlet.

Tips: Be sure to give reasons and examples for your choices, and be prepared for discussion and even opposition during your presentation.
