Sense Verbs and Adjectives ESL Games, Activities and Worksheets

Name Two

ESL Sensory Adjectives Game - Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 25 minutes

In this five senses board game, students name two things that match with sensory adjectives. One team member starts by picking up a card and asking their partner to name two things that match the sensory adjective on the card, e.g. 'Name two things that feel rough'. Their partner then has one minute to say two things using the sense verb and adjective, e.g. 'Two things that feel rough are a coconut and coral.' If the team member names two things successfully, they roll the dice and move their team's counter along the board. If not, the team remains on the same square. It's then the other team's turn to play. The first team to reach the 'Finish' square wins the game.

Sensational Orders

ESL Sensory Adjectives and Verbs Game - Speaking and Matching Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

In this free sense adjectives and verbs game, students order pictures by listening to descriptions of how the items look, feel, taste and smell. Student A places their picture cards in a random order on a number board. The aim of the game is for Student B to arrange the pictures in the same order as their partner. Student A begins by describing the picture in square one by saying what the item looks like, feels like, smells like or tastes like. Student B listens and finds a matching picture, placing it over square one. The two students do this without revealing their answers. If Student B is unsure, they can ask more questions, e.g. 'What does it look/feel/taste/smell like?' Student A continues describing each picture in turn until Student B's board is complete. Student A then reveals the answer for each numbered square. Student B scores one point for each correct match. The two students then swap roles and repeat the game. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.

In these two sense adjective games, students play a matching game where they match sense adjectives to pictures and then play a describing game in which they describe the pictures in terms of how the things feel, taste, smell and look. In groups, students take it in turns to turn over a sensory adjective card and a picture card. If the sensory adjective matches with the word on the picture card, the student keeps the two cards and has another turn. If the cards don't match, the student turns them back over. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner. Students then move on to play a describing game with the picture cards. Students take it in turns to choose one of their picture cards. The other group members ask the student questions about what the thing on the card feels like, tastes like, smells like and looks like, e.g. 'What does it feel like?' The student answers accordingly, e.g. 'It feels rough'. The first group member to correctly guess the word on the card wins and keeps the card.
