Adjectives are brought to mind; for example, teacher asks what the term means, and then shows some examples of items that have these qualities.
Firstly, using the drawing tools of Pear Deck, pupils have to circle certain items from ten English sentences. These items are adjectives. Then, pupils have to draw images of those adjectives using Pear Deck, and write them again themselves underneath their pictures. Finally, they draw a picture or a cartoon with figure(s) that use these same adjectives in English. Simultaneously, their progress is shown to the teacher on their own device and Pear Deck account.
At the end of the given time period, pupils’ answers and works are shown to everyone, and some of them are evaluated by other pupils, while some other answers, for example the first activity, are evaluated only by the teacher using positive feedback.
