Task Description
I turned this short animation into a dubbing game with 7 gapfill questions. Here's how you can use it in class: 1. Show the video lesson to the students. For each gapfill popup, they should guess what the wildebeests are saying, and suggest exactly one word to fill in the gap (5 out of 7 gaps a basic verb in either present simple, present continuous or past simple form). If the students have trouble guessing the right word, just give them clues, ask them helpful questions so they can figure it out. 2. Follow up: watch the video again on YouTube (you can find the original link below this description). Put students in pairs. Stop the video at each talking point and let them create their own unique dialog. Then continue playing and stop again at the next talking point. Students continue writing their dialog. 3. Go around and make sure to correct what the pairs are writing. 4. Get the pairs to practice their dialog. 5. Finally, ask for volunteers to dub the movie live while you're playing the video. 6. For homework you can either ask students to expand the dialog a little bit, and submit it in writing. Or you can ask them to write it up as a fable (an animal story). My video lesson is meant for Beginners (pre-A1) and Elementary (A1) students. Have fun!
