Art Gallery. This is a great activity for reviewing jobs vocab. Draw enough squares on the board for each S to be able to draw in. Have the Ss write their names above their squares. T calls out a job and the Ss draw it (e.g. doctor, baker, musician, etc.). For each S give a score for his/her picture, and then move on to the next picture. The S with the highest score at the end is the winner.
Jobs Brainstorm. Have Ss in small groups or pairs brainstorm as many jobs as they can in 2 minutes - they need to write down (as a group) on a piece of paper. Then get each group to change papers. Write some questions on the board for the Ss to discuss, including: Which job would you most/least like to do? Which job is the most dangerous / safest? Which job has the highest / lowest salary? Which job in the most exciting / boring? Etc. Finally, collate all of the group answers on the board to find out overall which jobs were chosen for each question.
Jobs Snap. Print out flashcards of different jobs - make sure you print 2 sets per group. Then put into groups and deal out the cards. Students play snap together.
