Head Up (Watch And Tap ESL Game A1 / A2 Level)

Task description & scene summary

Task description:
I changed the Listen & Tap Game into Watch & Tap in this ESL video lesson. Tap each of the 6 actions of the little goat when you first see it on screen. (All actions are about the little goat.) You have to be quick to tap, otherwise you lose the point.

Each action verb is related to movements. I deliberately left them in the infinitive form so you can make your students make sentences in the past after each verb, e.g. The little goat jumped over the tree trunk.

This ESL / EFL video quiz works best with A1 / A2 level students. If you think it will be a bit too easy or a bit too difficult for your students, you can adapt the difficulty by editing a copy of this quiz. Click on the Copy & edit button below the video to clone the lesson and make it yours so you can tailor it to your students' level, e.g. by omitting a particular verb.

Thanks to profzsuzsi for the inspiration that I got from her video lesson: https://en.islcollective.com/video-lessons/goats-present-perfect

Lesson plan

Follow-up tasks

1. Get students to narrate the short film using the action verbs from the lesson.

2. Alternatively, you can have students to "dub" the film. Have them prepare a script (a dialog) as if the characters were speaking. Then have two students stand up next to the big screen you are projecting this film onto, and have them dub the movie in real time.

3. Or simply have students order the actions in chronological order: The little goat jumped over the tree trunk. The little goat came back for his dad. The little goat pushed his dad. The little goat jumped back and forth over the cliff. The little goat tripped over a tree trunk. The little goat bumped into his dad.

Discussion questions

1. What did the son learn from his dad?

2. What did the dad learn from his son?

Vocabulary list

  • trip over: catch one's foot on something and stumble or fall.
  • jump over: hop or leap: go up into the air and then come back to the ground
  • bump into: to accidentally hit against something
  • come back: return: go back to where you were a while ago
  • jump back and forth: move between two places a few times
  • push: move another person forward with your hands
