If you are thinking about doing a project with your students, you have come to the right place.
There are 119 free worksheets
in the projects section with the majority being craft activities. For a Motherís Day class with young learners consider trying out this project activity
. Students create a cute card for their mothers by following the directions on the worksheet. There is no real English element to this activity so be sure you turn it into an ESL activity by having students practice pronunciation of related words and writing a message. There are many other worksheets to choose from especially if you are looking for something with a holiday theme.
Projects are usually lots of fun for teachers and students.
For younger students crafts are really enjoyable and will make your classroom look more inviting. For your older learners you really do not want to do a lot, if any, craft activities like the one above; you will have to assign projects that are more focused on studying English. You could, for instance, ask students to research a historical figure, create a poster, and give a presentation to the class. This would give them lots of reading and speaking practice while also allowing them to get a little creative with their poster design. Adult classes will rarely include projects simply because students are too busy outside of class to devote a lot of time to such an activity. Whenever conducting an activity be sure that your students will be able to focus on the material for the amount of time it will take to complete it. For young learners this might be just one class period while for other students you might decide to set several lessons aside.
