Speech feature: approximation

Approximation - practice
Matching / transformation exercise (can be done orally) + personal / local questions for students to answer using approximation expressions. (Less challenging than the resource pack activity).
Approximation - revision - noughts and crosses game
Groups of 3. Each student draws a noughts and crosses grid and writes in the nine approximating words and phrases (shown in the example grid). They then take it in turns to read out the sentences on the left side of the table. The first student who can supply the answer on the left side of the table can cross that square.
Approximation - reference sheet
Approximation expressions quiz
Seventeen-question MC quiz testing approximation expressions from Unit 1 of Straightforward Advanced.
