Spot the difference - a speaking activity for budding CSIs

Instead of teaching "furniture" and "rooms in the house" with year 9 this term I decided to make it more interesting.

Instead of describing their house my students are to become CSIs.

They aren't describing a room they are describing a crime scene.

They are given a picture to describe (with a carefully added corpse):

Then another picture  to compare it to:
You can easily find these types of photos with a google image search and they are much more fun than the run of the mill "describe your house" activities.

Plus this will mean that the students have to use 2 different tenses when reporting back to their group..

Having fun and learning? Don't tell Mr Gove!
