Often, students are asked to memorize a long list of vocabulary without contextualizing it. Although this approach is usually taken to expedite learning, students typically need to use and think about new terms in context to retain the new vocabulary. In this activity, students will create a spider map that uses common food vocabulary in sentences. Students can practice this new vocabulary in relation to appropriate verbs, time expressions, and other useful expressions.
Each cell should focus on a vocabulary word or two that the student has placed in the context of a sentence. Push students to vary their sentences and to use further description like time of day, frequency, or reasons why.
