Blindfold Activities in the TEFL classroomWritten by William Sullivan
One method of creating a genuine information gap is through use of blindfold activities. Blindfolds can be employed in a variety of ways in TEFL/foreign language classroom to foster a truly communicative and student-centered approach to learning. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
This first activity is a great way of reinforcing language of giving directions. After having one student to leave classroom, teacher instructs remaining students rearrange classroom furniture. The student who has left classroom is then blindfolded and brought back in. Students then use target language to lead one blindfolded through maze of rearranged classroom desks and chairs to some goal—this could be a special treat, a piece of candy, a valuable item (that had previously been taken from student), or some other reward.
Another activity—and this one is played in groups of three—is called Artist, Model, Clay. As soon as first student (the Clay) is blindfolded, second student (the Model) strikes a pose. The goal is for remaining student (the Artist) to use target language, describing pose to blindfolded student. Ideally, by end of activity blindfolded student should be positioned similar to pose originally struck by Model. It is excellent for practicing imperatives (“Put you right leg out a bit more!” or “Bend your knee slightly!”) or for reinforcing parts of body.
