The target language for this activity is:

    like - favorites

    have - for description

    language for introduction

    simple present tense

Time:  30-45 minutes

Additional activities that can be done with these self intros:

a Scavenger Hunt!  Cut up the self intros and post them around the room.  Prepare a list of questions such as:

How many people are 9 years old?

What colors do people like?

How many boys are there?

Who has a pet and what's their pet's name?

Then have the students go around in pairs or individually and have them gather as much information as they can in the allotted time.
