Lesson Plan Text

A & An Drawing Games
Instructions for teachers
Cut up one set of cards per class or group of two to four students. Decide if you will keep 
the pairs of 
“a” and “an” things together on one card or cut them up individually, if you will 
keep the 
“a” and “an” attached or cut them off, and if you will use the “It” “is”/ “’s” cards or 
not.

There are several drawing games that you can play with these cards:
-

The teacher or one student draws until the people watching describe it (including the
right article/ in a sentence)

-

Students put together cards with an article/ in a sentence for their partners to draw

-

Students race to draw and write a description of the thing that the teacher or a student
shouts out

All the games can also be played with a pair of things on the same line both being drawn 
at the same time, e.g. drawing an apple and a strawberry and making sure that they use 
the right article to describe each. 

Make sure that you keep all the drawing from the game and ask students to describe all of
them (using the right articles) after you finish. They could then test each other in other 
ways such as raising their right or left hand depending on whether the noun or adjective 
they hear should take 
“a” or “an”
