Objects around the classroom

This lesson focuses on language to describe classroom objects.

Jo Bertrand

Learners will learn or review vocabulary for a variety of classroom objects, as well as prepositions of place, in order to be able to describe where things are in the classroom. They will draw, play games and sing a song to practise the language and structures. There are also several additional suggestions for follow-up activities that can be set as homework or done in following lessons as review.


  • To learn or review vocabulary related to classroom objects
  • To review prepositions of place
  • To review the structure 'It's on the table.'
  • To practise using the structure 'There's a pen on the table.'
