First, cut the worksheet along the dotted line and give one half to each student. Then, without showing their partner, students should ask and answer questions to complete the table. For example, ‘Does Chris like tennis?’ – ‘No, he doesn’t.’ At the end of the activity, both students should have a table complete with the same information.
This sports worksheet is another activity worksheet to get your students talking. Students should walk around the class and talk with their friends about what sports they are good at.

This sports worksheet is based on the game ‘Battleships’. Students should write 10 sport names anywhere in their grid without showing their partner. These sport words are the students’ ‘Battleships’. Then students will take turns trying to find their partner’s battleships by calling out the grid coordinates (e.g. E 3). When they find one of their partner’s battleships, their partner must make a sentence using the sport vocabulary in that square. For example, ‘My favorite sport is tennis.’. The first student to find all 10 words (battleships) is the winner.
This simple worksheet is great for practicing writing and spelling common sport names in English. There are 12 sport names and students should write each word 3 times.
