(Almost) Infinite ELT Ideas: Maps

(Almost) Infinite ELT Ideas was an idea originally conceived by Sandy Millin, and shared on her blog of the same name. In her words…

I will post a prompt for you to exercise your teaching muscles by making suggestions on how you could use it in class. All ideas are welcome – there are no wrong answers! Together we’ll build up a bank of inspiration for you to turn to whenever you’re stuck.

I always loved this idea, so I’ve decided to steal it for my own blog (with Sandy’s permission, of course!)

For this month’s idea, I present… maps!

How would you use maps with your students? Leave a comment below with your suggestion and in a few days, I’ll add a suggestion of my own.

  1. Glad to see you get as many responses as I do 😉

    That particular map looks amazing – very colourful and fun.

    Here are two ideas I have for using maps:
    – Give each group a tourist map of a different city, the kind you would collect from tourist information. They decide on the story behind each of the places noted on the map, with no obligation for them to be the real stories.
    – Give each group the same tourist map. Tell them you’re planning to visit the city, but you only have two hours. They have to decide what you should visit, in what order, and plan your route to make the best use of your time.

    Hope you get some other responses at some point! Thanks for keeping the (Almost) Infinite ELT Ideas flag flying 🙂
