Which One? Listening Comprehension Exercise

PDF, PowerPoint | 1 page|Grades: 1 - 6

An Interactive PowerPoint where students choose an image to match an aural description.

Do you wish your students were more attentive? Are you looking for ways to gradually improve their listening skills? This activity promotes both active listening and comprehension. The resource includes:

  • a 23-slide Interactive PowerPoint depicting 10 sets of 3 images (each set labelled ‘Which One?’)
  • a script containing a short description for each ‘Which One?’ slide.

How Do You Use This Listening Exercise?

This resource could be used in one session, or broken up and delivered over several sessions. To keep engagement levels high, short frequent exposures to this type of listening with a purpose may prove to be more effective.

  1. Choose the ‘Which One?’ slide you wish to use and have the script ready to read to the students.
  2. Remind students that they need to listen carefully and wait until they’ve heard the entire description – as multiple clues are provided.
  3. Select students to take turns clicking on the image they think BEST matches the description. Encourage discussion to justify thinking and re-read the description if necessary.
