20 teaching ideas for starters

20 fun and creative suggestions for lesson starter activities.

Example ideas

Use images. Show students a selection of images/cartoons and get them to explain which relates to the last lesson’s learning and how the others might tie in later, e.g. an example of a process currently being studied.

Word tennis. Divide the class into two groups and get them to take it in turns to say a word related to the current topic. No words can be repeated. The idea is that this is a game of word tennis and so should be scored as such.

Thank you for this resource.
