The Body Collage ESL project is formed by combining body parts cut-out from magazines.
You will need a number of different magazines, at least one for every two students.
Students can complete this activity individually or in pairs. You will need a piece of A4 paper, scissors and glue for each individual/pair.
- The students find different body parts in the magazines.
- They cut the body parts out and stick them on the A4 paper to make a whole body (leaving enough space around the edge for labelling).
- They label each body part.
- You could display each completed work as a poster on the wall. Optionally, you could also get the students to choose/vote for their favourite.
The Body Collage ESL project is a very basic activity designed for low-level beginners (usually kids). Students practise recognising and writing out the body parts vocabulary.
It could work well as a cross-curricular activity for school-age children. Students would learn about the collage technique in their art class, then apply those ideas/techniques here.
