Planning the unplanned: Using real photos in class

How do you use real photos in class? What kind of activities do you do?

Yesterday I decided to use some of my printed photos from the early 90s with my 13-year-old student as a warm-up before using the LP on football.

Before our class, I asked him to bring some of his own printed and digital pics to share and comment each other's images.

To my surprise, he was super engaged with the activity and asked me lots of questions about my bizarre vintage stuff... lol

This class inspired me to write 12 ideas to use real photos in class, I'll probably add more because possibilities are endless. In the meantime, I let you spread your creative wings and come up with more ideas in the comments...

Don't forget to take some pictures for your classes!!!

Thanks Silvina!

One more possible idea... Ask students to imagine what happened before and after the picture could bring in more variety of tenses... or ask would you like to... (go on that swing for example to go with the photo of you in Ecuador)

Yes, I included the before and after pic question but I didn't include the would you like to...? Thanks, dear, great ideas as usual! :)
