Sign Language 6th grade Linguistics

  • Today we will continue our unit on sign language. By the end of this unit you should be able to sign the whole alphabet, numbers, greetings, days of the week, various foods, weather, and animals.
  • Today we will focus on learning and mastering signs for animals!
  • We will watch a quick video to go over some of the basic zoo animals. From there we will as a class go over the 13 animals I want everyone to know super well.
  • As a table group you will then play pictionary which I will explain later.
  • We will then play a game called "Who Am I" where i will stick a post it note to your back and your classmates must give you clues only using sign language as to what you are.
  1. We will play this game in your table groups of 4 for 20 minutes
  2. The shortest person goes first, then go clockwise
  3. Each student will choose an animal from the cards I have provided you on your desk to draw
  4. The first person to guess the animal BY SIGNING IT gets one point!
  5. The person with the MOST points at the end will win a prize!
Who Am 1?
  • So we will be doing the same kind of acting out game just a little different!
  • I already have a sticky note for each of you with one of the 13 animals we have learned today which I will come around and stick on each of your backs!
  • Don't look at the animal or that ruins it!
  • When everyone has an animal on their back they will walk around the classroom and have students use sign language to describe their animal. They can spell out the animal in sign language letters, describe the animal using sign language, or even just sign the actual animal
  • Once you figure out your animal come find me, give me your sticky note, and sign your assigned animal to me.
