Matching exercises or vocabulary revision activities

These exercises cover a range of activities which usually require students to match up two or three items, usually vocabulary words with their correct definition and/or with an illustration. A variation may also be used to match concepts with a matching diagram/definition or a topic sentence with supporting detail, etc.

Give a copy to each student to match up. The students then discuss their choices with a partner. The teacher listens in on the discussions and follows up with a whole class discussion focusing on areas of uncertainty.

Watch these short videos to see matching exercises being used in a primary context and in a secondary context
