Life of Pi: Vocabulary Practice - Animals

One of my all times favorite movies. Life of Pi is an unforgettable experience. The opening scene is perfect for all beginners levels working with vocabulary related to zoo animals. Kids love it!


Small groups - GAME:

I. Make a list of all the zoo animals  you can remember.
II. Watch the segment. Check how many animals you guessed correctly.
The winner is the group who guesses most correct animals.
